Had a celebration dinner at KO Prime last night and left disappointed. I thought the celebrity chef steak house might be different than all the national chains but was wrong.
Started with Lobster Bisque and Tuna Tartar and both of those were tasty and well presented. The Muse de Chef was an interesting salmon ceviche. The bread was quite average.
We did strip steak and filet mignon; both medium rare. The steaks were $40 plus and we had to add the sides (a steak house irritant). The frites were perfectly cooked and quite tasty and well presented. Both steaks came with a specific sauce or topping. We don't actually recall what they were but the fillet topping had a pickled taste that surely detracted from the meat. The strip steak came with small whole onions. Frankly, we've had better steaks for $15 at Longhorn Steakhouse at Fenway.
The desserts as well good; sort of. The carrot cake had a ginger ice cream that was awesome but didn't really go with the cake. The chocolate bread pudding was interesting but not phenomenal. At these prices, I expect everything to be excellent.
Lesson learned. For steaks go to Longhorn and do celebratory meals at a more inventive place.
