This high-end steak and seafood restaurant sits atop the brand-new Millennium Vee Hotel. Besides steaks, diners can enjoy an a la carte selection of live seafood, ranging from Boston and Australian Spiny lobsters prepared in a variety of ways to French Belon and Fine de Claire oysters, plus other various hors d'oeuvres and entrees. --By Douglas Habecker, translated by Angel Pu
As its name hints, The Prime offers premium American dry-aged and other steaks, ranging from the 300-gram Aged Strip Loin (NT$1,200) to the 28-day dry-aged, 1.2-kilogram Angus T-bone (NT$9,800, serves 2). For a complete sampling, try the eight-course NT$2,800 set, which is changed regularly.
The comfortable, 167-seat interior features a striking wave-like ceiling line and big windows providing glamorous views of the surrounding luxury high-rises.
There are six 10-person private rooms, such as the pictured "Odin" room, plus a big wine cellar, live music 9 p.m.-12 a.m. Thursdays to Saturdays, and a soon-to-be-added attached cigar room.
