Prime Rib Restaurant Review

: In a room with a glass-topped piano and all the glamour of a 1940s movie set, what else would you expect but retro cooking? Enjoy the pleasures of a bygone day but with the quality and attention to detail indicative of foodie-friendly modern times. The bar is usually packed with suits after work, and the dining room coddles a mature, moneyed crowd. They come for lump crab meat cocktails that are really jumbo, and salads as heavily dressed as one might desire. The signature prime rib could daunt a caveman, as could the double pork chops and the two-pound stuffed lobster. Steakhouse vegetables such as creamed spinach and crisp potato skins are served family-style and so are the old-fashioned, house-made desserts. Service is pampering, like the good old days, but the 20 Wines Under $50 section of the wine list is a concept for today. The three-course $45 deal is a great value.
