Regretting Reservation at BLT Prime-Put me at Ease!

steakrules85 | Oct 30, 2007 09:32 PM

I made a reservation for BLT Prime tonight to celebrate my new job and now am kind of regretting it. I am a steak lover and have wanted to try it for quite some time after hearing some great things. But I have the feeling that it won't live up to top steakhouse standards. (I'm a Luger fanatic). The other options I was seriously considering were Strip House (everyone raves about it) and Smith and Wollensky. I can always cancel the reservation but I was just wondering if everyone thinks I should keep it. Strip House really doesnt have the time I want but if it is truly head and shoulders above BLT Prime I'll sacrifice.

Does the steak live up to the hype? I am going to order either the porterhouse or ribeye and have read mixed reviews. Some say the porterhouse was rather small and other complain the ribeye is not a quality piece of meat (fatty,thin) for the price. I need some input from those who have tried both cuts PLEASE! Also I just read a few reviews that mentioned BLT overcooks their steak which is a serious problem for me. Please tell me there is nothing to worry about---- unless there is of course! If I am going to dish out those kind of prices I want to make sure it is the best dinner possible. So Overall should I just stick it out with BLT Prime or cancel and go to Strip House?
