The Prime Grill was established in 2000 by owner and founder Joey Allaham and is the first restaurant from Prime Hospitality Group. Allaham, a fourth generation butcher from Syria brought his “meat” expertise to the United States in 1993 and began a journey to change the public perception of kosher dining. After a move to their new home in the middle of 2013, Allaham created an atmosphere suitable for business men, ladies who lunch and patrons looking for a relaxed, elegant atmosphere with delicious inventive comfort food for all types of occasions. As a trained butcher Allaham was able to provide the restaurant with the best quality and finest cuts of meat available and as a business man he was able to understand the needs of his patrons and offer only top quality service with the freshest ingredients possible.
The kitchen at The Prime Grill is spear headed by Executive Chef and cookbook author, David Kolotkin, who was introduced to Allaham in the early years of The Prime Grill where he has been creating and perfecting their menu and overall “kosher” experience. Working in the challenging environment of a kosher kitchen, Chef David’s creativity and inventive style have given The Prime Grill an internationally renowned status. Chef David Kolotkin alongside Allaham created a menu with classics like Texas Style Rib Eye, Smoked BBQ Short Ribs, Miso Glazed King Salmon, and fresh Sushi. In addition, the Prime Grill is nationally acclaimed for dry aging USDA Prime Steaks on premise. The restaurant features an international wine list and complete bar with exotic drinks. The NY Observer writes: “Since it was launched, the Prime Grill has become the center of a new kind of diaspora power dining-a sort of lunch-time machers' minion where Jewish heavyweights like Ron Perelman and Larry Silverstein kibitz, hondle and, yes, break bread.”

Should Restaurants Ban Children at their establishment?

Should Restaurants Ban Children at their establishment?
Steven Traube, Director of Operations of Prime Grill, Prime KO & Solo was on Fox News to debate why talk of a ban on kids at restaurants is a mistake. Click the video above and reply here to share your thoughts on the topic.
Definitely not! This country is not a dictatorship and families should have the same rights as adults to eat out at an upscale restaurant/eatery. I can see asking the families too watch over the kids and have a minimium charge per child since the restaurant/eatery has a loss if thgere is hardly any food and certainly no consumption of Alcohol.

Prime Grill New York
Isaac- 04/29/09 I WENT THERE LAST THURSDAY.AFTER WAITING CLOSE TO HALF AN HOUR TO BE SEATED THE SERVER WAS VERY RUDE SAID HE CANNOT ALLOW SUBSTITUTION ON A SIDE DISH BECAUSE THE CHEF WOULD NOT ALLOW IT. I THINK THE PRICES ARE OUTRAGEOUS AND I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND IT TO ANY OF MY FRIENDS
Reply #1 submitted by: Elan Kornblum, Publisher on 04/29/09 I believe they do allow substitutions and there prices are high but so is their quality. I wouldn't call it outrageous. What is your last name, so they can see who your waiter was?

Prime Grill Price Point
Jonathan Morristown NJ- 12/03/08 I just called to inquire about using the private room at Prime Grill for a party between 12 and 16. The advised that that for a party of 12 we must spend (excluding tax and tip) a minimum of $3,000 ($275 per person) and $3500 for a party of 16 or $218.75 per person. I knew it was expensive but don't understand how we can spend that much if this website indicates that the average price per person is $40 to $60 (PP w/o drinks). Can someone who has been there explain how the restaurant might be arriving at this price point?
Reply #1 submitted by: Brenda on 12/03/08 Jonathan,
That does seem like alot of money pp.I have eaten there over the years tons of times and you can spend over $100 pp easy with appetizers,sushi,dinner,dessert but the reason the private room is so expensive is you are getting better service and they wait on you hand and foot.I would just reserve for however many people in your party and forget the private party room.
Reply #2 submitted by: tzvi on 01/05/09 as in all restaurants a party price is more than an average check unless you come in on a slower day or time. the reason for this is that parties generally sit for double the time that an average diner does. i suggest to friends when asking about booking parties at restaurants to be open on the day (weekends or mondays) or times (early like 5:30pm or after 9pm) to get the best pricing.

Dini's Kosher Restaurant
David Cohen- 01/22/08 this is by far the nicest meat restaurant i've been to in the world - i thought i was stunning!
food was excellent, prices where insane! and kashrute level was very good i met the shochet a very learned rabbi from Johannesburg, South Africa
he comes 2ce a month to do schita for all of the meat in china.
They provide kosher meals - and will be the only kosher restaurant in Beijing for 2008 Summer Olympics as far as now
Crispy Beaf was insane as was the some type of chicken they had with some type of peanut butter sauce spicey wow!
there food and portions were insane as the prices all the food we ordered came out to be $40 and boy did we order!
per person you can easily get out for under $15
there prices were really great and i felt like i was back home at a restaurant like solo or prime grill.
Twist & Roll
Zahavamom- 01/20/08 My husband and I, on a motzei shabbos went to Twist & Roll with another couple. We were pleasantly surprised! The service was actually quite good, our food was delicious. My husband and I ordered sushi which was one of the best sushi that I have tasted. I got the spicy tuna and I have to say it was better than Prime Grill's (we went there the next week!)The pretzels were moist and fresh and the pizza we ordred was hot and cheesy. OVERALL, I would definately go back and would recommend it to my friends. We were there for 3 hrs and nobody rushed us along, the atmosphere was quite pleasant.
