Philadelphia has no shortage of great steakhouses, and Barclay Prime proudly counts itself among their number. Located in the first floor of Rittenhouse Square’s historic Barclay Building, this steakhouse combines old-world luxury with the latest technology to create a dining experience for the ages. Order a specialty martini from the bar to start your meal off. Of course, the big draw here is the steaks, and they’re fantastic. The 28 day dry aged New York strip steak is out of this world – incredibly tender and flavorful, it pairs well with the house steak sauce. Other cuts are equally impressive. The sides are executed very well, with special praise going to the truffle mashed potatoes and creamed spinach. Service is incredible and the atmosphere of the place is classic, with dark woods, comfortable seating, and tons of privacy. Sure, you’re going to take a hit in the wallet from a meal here, but it’s very much worth it.
