National Prime Rib Day 2019: Best Restaurants to Celebrate With a Juicy Beef Roast

Do we really need an excuse to buy some prime rib? Well, just in case you do it's National Prime Rib Day on Saturday, April 27, and we've listed some of the major restaurants in America that have received top reviews and awards in recognition of their culinary delights.

Lawry's The Prime Rib

Based in Chicago, this Illinois treasure has been open since 1974. Located in the heart of the Magnificent Mile, it occupies the 1890's McCormick Mansion that became the Kungsholm Puppet Theatre.

The restaurant envelops this history as part of its ambience and offers a "unique" menu. It serves its famous roasted prime ribs of beef tableside and has won awards for its dining. 

During April, Lawry's is offering a "Hess Wine Dinner for Two" which includes a Lawry cut, signature sides, glass of wine, and a dessert of your choice. Book now to avoid disappointment.

The Prime Rib

“Buzz Beler is the Godfather of Steak…” says Pat LaFrieda Jr of Food Networks' Meat Men. The Prime Rib is located in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Baltimore, and according to Zagat is a “very old-school” K Street steakhouse and a "natural for celebratory dining."

Do you need any more of a reason to go? It was voted one of the most romantic restaurants in the U.S. by Food and Wine Magazine, and requires a dinner jacket to be allowed in. 

According to its website, it was designed by brothers Buzz and Nick BeLer to "evoke the elegant supper clubs of 1940’s Manhattan." The Baltimore location opened first in 1965, followed by D.C. in 1976 and Philadelphia in 1997 in the Warwick Hotel.

Harold Seltzer’s Steakhouse

Descended from a family of Montreal butchers, Harold Seltzer used the lessons handed down from his parents to eventually open his steakhouse in Tampa, Florida, according to the website. While he left the business in 2005, he set up again in 2010 following the closing of his original venture, now naming it The Original Harold Seltzer’s Steakhouse in Petersburg and New Port Richey, Florida.

In April, you can get 2-pound prime rib for $30.99 after 8.30 p.m. on Saturday. Best to make a reservation before they run out.

4 Charles Prime Rib

An "intimate supper club" tucked away in Manhattan's West Village, this late night dining den welcomes all for prime steaks, fresh seafood, hand-carved slices of prime rib, and decadent desserts.

Its prime rib is slow-roasted for 12 hours and is served with a natural beef jus and horseradish cream. You also have the choice of three cuts: English Cut, Chicago Cut and the 4 Charles Cut.

Clyde's Prime Rib Restaurant and Bar

Another old-school, classic steakhouse, Clyde's Prime Rib apparently offers a "unique" Portland, Oregon dining experience.

Located in Alameda Ridge in northeast Portland's Hollywood District, you can enjoy your prime rib while listening to live jazz, blues, funk or R&B music in the Rat Pack lounge. Going for over 60 years, it stays away from "on-trend' culinary concepts and focuses on classics, such as dry-aged and slow-roasted prime ribs.

If you go on Saturday, you'll be entertained with music from live band, In The Mix. 

But if you don't feel like going out for your prime rib, have a go at making your own prime rib roast at home with the help of Martha Stewart.
