Lawry's The Prime Rib

Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

This iconic prime rib establishment first opened its doors 75 years ago in Beverly Hills, California. Although it’s been decades since opening day, there are still only ten Lawry’s Prime Rib Restaurants worldwide, including the one in Gangnam, Seoul. This is due to the founder’s stubborn belief that a special restaurant can't stay special if it turns into a giant chain. The news of Lawry’s opening in Seoul was met with cheers from meat lovers, especially American cuisine fanatics. The atmosphere is sophisticated and classic, recalling the old Hollywood hotel days with high-backed chairs, full silverware sets, and servers impeccably dressed in crisp, retro uniforms. Various ribs are available by size and cut, and served in a course including salad, bread, dessert, and coffee. Though the prime rib certainly takes center stage, the classic sides of creamed spinach and mashed potatoes will bring you right back to the U.S. of A. Their generously portioned prime rib steaks are cooked low and slow, tenderizing the meat enough to make it melt in your mouth.
