Meat, the handsomest of the nine food groups, gets its good looks from spice rubs, tenderizers, and long soaks in anti-aging marinades. Ogle seductive slabs with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of gourmet fare and drinks at Prime Steakhouse in Webster.
With its New York City–style dining, warm, modern décor, and expressionist art hangings, Prime Steakhouse offers an original take on classic steakhouse fare. The expansive menu covers all the basics of a meatatorium, adding signature twists along the way. The wild Scottish salmon charges onto the plate, swinging a potato apple pancake at red cabbage and currants ($25), and the robust ricotta gnocchi comes side-kicked with artichokes, leeks, and pancetta ($14). Of course, no juice-craving jaw would be satisfied without an array of hand-cut, certified angus beef steaks (starting at $28) and a variety of domestic and imported beers (starting at $4). Prime Steakhouse takes its drink menu a step further from the potable mien with a full selection of wines and distinctive cocktails, including the Dark and Stormy, in which Goslings Black Seal rum is carried off by waves of mint, lime, and ginger beer. Walk-ins are welcome, reservations are recommended, and mouths are mandatory.
