Seven-year-old Greek restaurant Parea Bistro in Flatiron has steakhousified to become Parea Prime, part of a full-on porterhouse renaissance sweeping Manhattan, which also includes Arlington Club, John DeLucie’s Bill’s redo, and the new iteration of Gallagher’s. While many of the Greek elements remain the same, Parea’s owners have brought in Bobby Van’s vet Jean Christophe Villard to oversee a vast and meaty menu of chops, rib-eyes, and strip steaks, all of which are dry-aged in Pat LaFrieda’s “Himalayan Salt room,” which is in fact a real thing. Check out the menu over here.
Good Choice. Better Prime.
