The Editorial


"The sight of The Prime Rib's prime rib is knee buckling; the taste tops almost any cut of red meat I have encountered in Philadelphia."
       - Philadelphia Magazine

Yes ladies and gentlemen, there is a steakhouse craze in America, and Philadelphia is no different. Forget about 22 Spots; we could have done 22 Steakhouses. And we do remember the days when Arthur's was almost the only steakhouse game in town. And with all these steakhouses, we are happy to report that there is only one at the Warwick, and that would be The Prime Rib, and it is as good as it gets.

They have nicknamed the Prime Rib the "Civilized Steakhouse" and the scene here is indeed civilized as well as swanky with a 1940's Manhattan supper club look. This spot has lots of style and a great vibe, but the folks really come here for the large cuts of prime beef, extra-thick chops, and fresh seafood. They also appreciate a superb wine list with a large selection including 30 bottles under $40.

There are tons of steakhouses, but they are not all the same. Some are decidedly better and there is no such thing as the absolute best steakhouse. One thing is for certain, the Prime Rib is outstanding and it does make a difference when a Victor Ossorio is in the kitchen, and Garth Weldon, one of the area's most likeable and respected owners is working the front of the house.
