Prime Steakhouse is under new ownership

1 Sep

I picked up another interesting bit of Webster business news in my travels around town yesterday. Prime Steakhouse on East Main Street has been sold.

This may not be news to you, since it actually closed its doors a few weeks ago. But I just found out yesterday, and was a bit surprised by the news. Last I heard from owner Neil Bauman, despite the troubles his other properties were  having with receiverships and such, The Prime was on solid ground.

Perhaps the economy finally did it in. Or perhaps it was the $28 steaks. Or maybe both.

In any case, I had the good luck to chat for a few minutes with the new chef, who told me the new owner hopes to open for business soon, maybe even as early as next week.  Various sources have informed me they’ll be keeping the name the same, but lowering the prices.

Stay tuned.
