Dry Aged Prime Beef on the South Shore

I'm willing (and expecting) to have to drive off Cape so any recs south of Boston or east of Providence?
I'm in RI and was looking for a large piece (whole strip and whole rib eye) of dry aged last summer and in the end had to order from NY (Otomanelli's on Bleecker)- Most places seem to do choice dry aged...
Savenor's has some, also call Whole Foods - they definitely have dry aged, not sure if it's prime or choice. Let me know if/where you find it!
Also.... there is a new place called Persimmon Provisions in Warren RI (it's a little far for you) but they seem to do very high end meats - maybe worth a call
I was at Venda on Federal Hill 2 weeks ago and they had dry aged prime rib roast
was $16/lb on special down from $18/lb, but they actually sold it to me for $14/lb
I got a 1 1/2 lb steak cut from it for around $22

I've never tried their meats. I saw the aging locker behind the butcher counter when I breezed through last week. The meat was not Prime. It was graded Choice or better. IIRC Strip steaks were $18.50 #. Porterhouse & rib eyes were $19.99 #. I would gladly pay more if they were Prime but I think that's pretty steep for Choice+. Obscene maybe a bit harsh but the Whole Foods experience gave me sticker shock.
