There's an almost monastic feel to the muted tones, sandstone walls and calming quiet of Prime, a place to chant your way through the catechism of marble-scores and the profuse detail of cattle provenance before the charred offerings arrive. First, though, an entrée: beef on beef? The tartare of wagyu, adorned with wasabi-spiked mayonnaise and a shard of crispbread, makes the idea seem plausible. And the main event? There are 18 steaks on show, from a relatively lean dry-aged Angus-Hereford sirloin to the $295 extravaganza of the Blackmore wagyu Chateaubriand; everything in between is at the fingertips of a confident, knowledgeable floor team, ably abetted by suggestions from a smart sommelier on appropriate wines from the exceptional, lengthy list. These guys know their product, and handle it with according finesse. Banana soufflé closes out with rum and raisin ice-cream and caramel anglaise - a sweet treat.
