Prime & Beyond (Fort Lee, NJ)

For Father’s Day, we decided to honor our dads by giving them what they love:  MEAT. I’ve heard about Prime & Beyond in the city, but didn’t know they had a Fort Lee location, too. It was casual and no-frills. The dinner menu consisted only of steak, but the chef was so gracious as to let us order a few dishes from the lunch menu that we really wanted to try: galbi tang (beef short rib soup) and galbi (beef short ribs in a Korean barbecue sauce). Both were amazing! The beef was so tender and fatty, just the way I like it. We also got an ordered of the smoked bacon strips (naturally, these were awesome). And then came the main course: Dry-aged ribeyes all around! We sampled both the bone in and boneless versions — I personally prefer the bone in :-) It was cooked perfectly medium rare and the charred crust was one of the best tasting things I’ve ever eaten! All in all, it was an incredible meal. I don’t like to say negative things about restaurants, but I must share that the service was horrible. I wouldn’t comment in it unless it was really bad. But the food was so good that it made up for it and I will definitely be back!

The best part of all — the bone!
