A Prime Example of Historic Renovation
A former Bank of America turned steakhouse, Prime 109 caters to a superior taste. While the outside of the building resembles a stately bank, the inside is totally transformed. Once you arrive, a valet will greet you and assist with parking should you need it. Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy high quality meats, wines and other dishes. The 5,500 sf restaurant will have two bars one of which is a Chef’s bar, where guests can watch the chef prepare meals. For special occasions, there is also a designated space for private dining.
Century old barn wood flooring creates a beautiful contrast to the neoclassical inspired ceiling, Carrara marble countertops and White tile. The eye-catching Chandeliers are also original to the space.
In the mens restroom, our team was able to keep most of the original 1915 woodwork. In the women’s room, we tried to reproduce some of the same character by adding raised panels and unique light fixtures to the lobby.
Meat is a big deal at Prime 109. An in-house butchery is setup to prepare your prime cuts of meat for dry aging. These aging display cases will be front and center for guests to witness the aging process in various phases. This process helps to tenderize the meat and increase the flavor.
Prime 109 is expected to open it’s doors to the public around September 1st.
We have a final inspection today and some cleanup to work on, but we will hand the space over very soon!
