Kayne Prime is a treat that’s worth the splurge. It’s the kind of place we go when we’re celebrating birthdays, graduations, or any big milestone. Kayne Prime brings all of the best things from traditional steakhouses into the modern age with creative spins that upgrade the usual favorites.
Their house-made bacon is the perfect example. This dish comes to your table as strips of pork belly rubbed with peppercorn, but Kayne Prime takes the dish a step further by adding a fluff of maple cotton candy to the top. Your waiter will mix the cotton candy into the pork belly with incredible speed – don’t blink or you might miss the magic!
Along with the bacon starter, we ordered the cheese plate with jam and walnuts and the grand fete de la mer – French for “sea party” (or more accurately, “seafood party in our mouths”). The fete de la mer knocked it out of the park with baby lobster tails, jumbo shrimp, crab claws, and multiple varieties of oysters.
For the main event, we went with filet mignon topped with bone marrow butter and the scottish salmon with yuzu chimichurri, both served with light, airy popovers. And we couldn’t resist ordering a few sides – risotto tater tots, creamed spinach topped with an egg, sake steamed and truffle oil topped brussel sprouts, and mushrooms with pepperoni. We’re stuffed just thinking about it!
From the bar, we tried the basil-berry lemonade (vodka, muddled basil, & fresh strawberry) and the Vivas 9 (mezcal, yellow chartreuse, ginger syrup, & lemon). Both made for an excellent palate cleanser between bites of pork belly and filet mignon.
Needless to say, we were more than satisfied by the time we left. We’ll be saving room until the next time we have something to celebrate!
