  1. i vote no for primehouse. although i was there for RW and not a "regular" meal, i wasn't that impressed with the place.

    1. BLT Prime for sure. i have been to Primehouse a few times and have been rarely wowed by their steaks, even after splurging once or twice for the reserve cuts.

      1. I also wasn't crazy about Primehouse. A $45 aged sirloin I had there was not as flavorfull as I would have expected and was cooked more medium than the requested medium rare. At those prices I am not so forgiving.

          1. BLT comparison. Superior on every level, as you can see from the other posts. The only real positive on Primehouse (in my book) are the spared-no-expense bar stools in the bar/lounge. Might be the most comfortable in the city.
