The Prime Rib Restaurant Review

: The ambience of The Prime Rib evokes that of an elegant supper club of the ’40s---gold-trimmed black walls, black-tie-clad waiters and a Lucite-topped grand piano that’s played during lunch and dinner. The name reveals the specialty: the best roast beef in town. You also can get that rib cut as a steak. If you choose not to eat red meat, the best alternatives are two regional seafood dishes: crab imperial (lump crab meat lightly bound with mayonnaise) and baked shrimp stuffed with crab meat. This is one of those rare restaurants where you can actually carry on a conversation and be heard no matter how many people are waiting for a table in the bar.
