BLT Prime only so-so, but Ben Benson's Delivered

Went to BLT Prime Saturday night expecting the earth to move. Found it only so-so and they seemed very impressed with themselves. Double strip on the bone surprisingly lacked that dry aged taste, although I saw the aging room on the way in. Creamed spinach was bland and not hot at all. Cheesecake not large enough to share. What gives? I felt like I had not been to a steakhouse, so went the next night to Ben Benson's which seems to be the Rodney Dangerfield of NY steakhouses. The 18 oz. strip was fantastic, and the cottage fries with onion rings were outstanding. Creamed spinach okay. Why doesn;t this place score higher with you NY'ers? (I am from out of town but have hit every NY steakhouse except Strip House)
