4 Charles Prime Rib
Supper club, speakeasy, steakhouse, Michelin-Guide approved restaurant—4 Charles Prime Rib is all these things and more. Tucked away underground on Charles Street in the West Village, this cozy spot is small yet mighty, and reservations are highly recommended. Opened by the Chicago restaurateur behind Chicago’s most famous burger joint, Au Cheval, it makes sense that meat dominates the menu with dishes like the outstanding bone-in Porterhouse for two served alongside truffle potatoes, creamed spinach and a whole head of roasted garlic. But you can also satiate your hunger with dishes that break from tradition like spaghetti carbonara twirled with pecorino and smoky guanciale set beneath a silky fried egg. The ingredients are always fresh and seasonal—that goes for the cocktails too.
