Destination Guides And Trip Planning / Prime Grill moving
« on: December 31, 2012, 04:35:23 PM »
Just saw a report from Great Kosher Restaurants that PG is moving a few blocks away...

Just a quick, but huge kosher restaurant footnote
to close 2012, as we usher in 2013.
Some time after January 19th, The Prime Grill, one of the country's premier kosher restaurants for 13 years, will be moving a few blocks away to 25 West 56th Street, between 5th and 6th Avenue. The space will be larger and they will continue to feature classic Prime Grill favorites, plus introduce a new generation of kosher cuisine including expanded menu options, a true wood brick oven
(a rarity) and more private dining capabilities.

The new facility will feature bi-level seating for over 360 diners as well as more private dinner and event potential. It will also feature a special wine themed private room with a premier collection of rare kosher wines. They will be at their current location on East 49th Street through January 18.
The grand opening date as well as more details and photos will follow on our Facebook page, on and in our next newsletter.
