That was fast: Thirteen-year-old kosher steak house Prime Grill will replace Beacon, which closed last week after thirteen years of business at 25 West 56th Street. In a letter to its regular customers, the restaurant’s owners explained that it will close its current 49th Street location on January 18 and reopen shortly in the space most recently home to Waldy Malouf’s contemporary American restaurant. The new Prime Grill will have 360 seats, the old restaurant’s wood-burning oven, and a separate room where a dedicated sommelier will pour old and rare vintages of Herzog wine, which is also kosher.
