Last night J and I had a fabulous meal at Prime & Beyond in the east village. I had seen this New York Times article about a month ago and knew we had to try it. Steak AND kimchi? It’s like they read J’s mind! Unfortunately, I didn’t get any good pics of the actual steak (I KNOW!), but the veggies and sides were awesome.
J ordered a dry-aged t-bone, and I had a wet-aged ribeye, which both came with a side salad, some grilled veggies and scallion salad. We added some king oyster mushrooms and kimchi and had a great meal. We started with small salads that had a fantastic Asian dressing — wasabi, yuzu, soy … nom! The steaks were delicious, and very well prepared. J thought his dry-aged steak was more flavorful, but mine was more tender. I enjoyed eating the steak with a little of the scallion salad on top so that the soy dressing dripped on the meat. The mushrooms were very subtly seasoned and grilled. The kimchi was spicy, but not overwhelming so, and it also went well with the steak.
They have a ton of Korean dishes on the menu (our waitress said all the Korean dish recipes were from the owner’s mother!) that we didn’t get to try, and I’d love to go back right now to try those.
