Prime Meats in Brooklyn’s Carroll Gardens neighborhood has positioned itself as not just a seller of fine dry-aged steaks and stellar bourbon-based cocktails, but a place where diners can order a bit of nostalgia as well. The design tips to Old New York with aged wooded booths and antique lighting fixtures.
With that in mind the owners, Frank Castronovo and Frank Falcinelli, will be serving a Titanic Dinner on June 5, paying homage to “The King of Chefs, and the Chef of Kings” Auguste Escoffier.
Below is the menu the Franks just released. For reservations, and you better believe this will book fast, you can visit the restaurant’s website. Roaring ’20s attire is requested. Fun!
