Perched up on the 68th floor of the JW Marriott Marquis, stunning views are almost guaranteed if dining at this boutique steakhouse. It goes without saying that you need to book well in advance to secure a window seat, but even if you end up away from the view, the experience is still an impressive one. Light tones of cream and white make the restaurant a pleasant place to be, and despite its high-end credentials, it doesn’t feel stuffy. The cheerful staff help maintain this atmosphere through their friendly and helpful manner, while not being overbearing. Hungry diners will enjoy Prime 68’s hefty steaks, including the 12-ounce New York strip. There are plenty of options to customise steaks here, with an array of sauces and butters – featuring indulgent ingredients such as truffle – as well add-ons including lobster and meat rubs. With such breath-taking views and pleasant setting, it’s pleasing that the food fits the surroundings.
