Prime Restaurant Review: Prime's well-functioning and aesthetically appealing interior shields guests from the noise of Lenox Square mall. You can bypass the steaks, hand-cut on the premises, entirely if you wish, and satisfy a sushi craving with an array of competently prepared combinations. Familiar Tom Catherall dishes --- he’s the restaurant’s owner --- also adorn the menu. Fans will recognize the hot chili seafood and the roast chicken with mashed potatoes and haricots verts. Chef Dan Garner offers such starters as oysters nestled on a bed of ice, as well as a juicy 14-ounce veal chop or double-cut lamb chops, along with myriad seafood dishes, among them halibut in season. For dessert, try the dark chocolate cobbler, a study in sinful abandon. The wine list covers a good bit of ground: it’s focused on California wines and includes rosés and selections from South Africa, and offers choices by the glass. Budget-watchers may dine on one of three pre-selected steaks at reduced prices from 5 p.m.-6:15 p.m. (must be seated by 6:15 p.m. and place your order by 6:30 p.m.).
