At Prime, the cavernous steakhouse set within the GPO, things are done on a grand scale. As you step through the colossal arched entrance and follow the red carpet to your linen-draped table, it's clear size is the key player here (the height of the menu is just the start) and prices follow suit. Want to go big with a 1.5-kilo Black Angus tomahawk, Romanée-Conti and classic accoutrements of potatoes - purée, gratin or chips - and roast tomatoes? You're in the right place. But this is not to say there's no satisfaction on the daintier side: blue swimmer crab with julienned apple, grapefruit and lemon-dressed avocado, for instance, or even just steaks cut along more modest lines, like the 100-gram Angus-Hereford fillets. For a finale with finesse, crème brûlée with passionfruit curd and meringue kisses hits a high note. Staff are as well informed as they are crisply attired. Prime may not be one size fits all, but there's a lot to love.
