What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.1

BLT Prime is a modern steakhouse that you can always get into, with great chops, a perfect tuna tartare, and the popover of your dreams.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

Every three minutes we were pestered by someone either asking us if we wanted something, removing something from the table adding something to table and generally disturbing us. It reminded of being a 2 year old in a high chair.

Steaks were excellent and the servers were top notch. Not sure I understood why the thunderous bass was thumping so loud in the background all night for a 7 pm dinner on a Thursday, but maybe I am turning the corner on getting old??? Anyway I will be back for the food and service which were both really tops.

Generally was very good as have been many times before. This was expensive, but not as large steaks as i’m used to. We had the Tomohawk - the food was fantastic, but could have been bigger as it was for 3 people. Also, the ‘marrow’ that came with, seemed more for decoration than actually to taste - which was a shame as I like bone marrow. I’d go back again, but would be cautious of steak for 3

Bacon not thick or tender enough
Steak for 2 was a small portion and was over seasoned - too much salt though filet pieces tasted good.
Sides were very mediocre. Mac and cheese was worst. Would also pass on onion rings. Creamed spinach was good as expected.
Popovers were great but needed added salt (recommended by waiter) meaning lots of salt during the entire meal. If I wanted a great steak dinner, I wouldn’t come back.

Bartender great, very friendly! Host and hostess nice. Waiter nice but tried too hard to get you to buy higher priced items (the "special" for twice the price of the filet mignon) and add on apps and dessert when you were full... too much like a used car salesman!
Table of people behind us very loud, but that was the luck of the draw. Side orders fantastic, ribeye with bone in had a little too much grizzle. For the price of the entire meal the ribeye could have been better not chewy.

We had a wonderful time. We had three young teenage boys with us and our server Luanne spoiled them. In fact, Luanne was fabulous all around. The complimentary popovers are mind-blowing ... we seriously considered stealing from the table next to us when they weren't eating there's. Our steaks were delicious and the creamed spinach was on point.

Very good food - cannot go wrong with their delicious popovers. The steak was mediocre, at best. Admittedly ordered a strip steak, but when attending a steakhouse of this caliber, strip steaks can be phenomenal, this particular steak was pretty fatty, though perfectly cooked and the side dishes excellent. The steak, unfortunately, was just not a nice NY strip by any means. Servers were quite attentive. The wine list is lovely and the dessert was a perfect finish to the evening.

Excellent 10 OZ filet, cooked perfectly. Truffle mashed potatoes delicious as were the mushrooms. Great cheesecake. The room is a nice size, not overwhelming and deafening as some of the older school steakhouses. I’ll be back.

Blt used to be one of my favorite places to go for a great steak. Unfortunately I cannot say that anymore. They removed their phenomenal Wagyu Ribeye for $98 for some fake 90 day aged (who cares) tomahawk for $185 and 42oz. The steak was pretty small, extremely fatty and pretty whatever. To add to the issue, their best dessert, the chocolate peanut butter mousse was also off the menu for the first time in their history. Their new “chef” (if you consider him a chef) didn’t like it. In its place is a chocolate cake my 91 year old grandma could make. While the elite wine list and popovers still keep BLT in the major leagues, they are slowly becoming the New York Mets of NYC

Very expensive. 16oz NY strip was $54 and had little flavor. Broccolini side was disappointing and my wife’s mini seafood tower was unimpressive for $35. Little cheesecake was tasty. The popovers were fun.
