Best prime rib in the city?

I'm looking for the best prime rib in the city. Who serves it? I need lots of feedback. Is it Keens, Smith and Wollensky (I heard they do a great PR), or someone else?

    I like Old Homestead's prime rib (the rest there, not so much).

      I'd go with S&W. Although Keens' size was monstrous, I preferred S&W. Someone said that the original Palm's was superior, but I have yet to check it out. I actually prefer a superior prime rib to a porterhouse anytime.

        No disrespect to all the premier steak joints in the city (and I work in one of them). But when it comes to Prime Rib, Houston's got my vote. Yes they are a chain but having worked there myself I could honestly tell you that they do so much prime rib on a daily basis (they would roast 8-10 whole primes) that they are always fresh and the au jus was meticulously prepared. Try their French Dip as well.

        i think keens is pretty good but i'm open to other suggestions.

        as an aside, i know how we cook prime rib at home but don't know how top-end restaurants cook theirs. any insight would be appreciated.
