House of Prime Rib Cut
Restaurant: House of Prime Rib
Recommended by: Hiro Sone of Ame in S.F. and Terra in St. Helena
At this low-lit steakhouse, Sone asks "for a slice close to the neck, which has a larger deckle," he says (deckle is a band of fat). "Add a baked potato and a Napa Valley Cab, and you don't need anything else." $$$$; 1906 Van Ness Ave.; houseofprimerib.net.
