The Prime Grill Not So Prime


Prime Grill has the big name and has had celebrities walk through its doors before. But I do have to say that while it is a good restaurant, I will never order one of their steaks again.

I love steak. When it’s a perfectly cooked medium-rare it’s flavorful, buttery and juicy. Prime Grill’s filet mignon was a complete disappointment. A $39 disappointment actually. I did keep in mind that the chef has more rules that he must adhere to because it is a kosher restaurant, but if that’s what kosher steaks taste like, I don’t need them. I got to try two sauces with my meat, one was too sweet, another just didn’t taste good. The lovely bartender recommended a BBQ sauce that is usually paired with a different dish and that was much better. Though I must say, that when you have a great steak, you don’t even need sauce. This steak lacked flavor and I need something to dip it in.

Another issue that I have with Prime Grill. It’s prices. The prices don’t match up with the taste of the food. Again, this may be the kosher aspect kicking in again, where it’s hard to find kosher restaurants that serve food like they do. So while people who keep kosher may love it, to me, it is sub-par to other NYC steakhouses. Take your money and go somewhere else.
