The Greenbrier resort’s premier Prime 44 West steakhouse, honoring famed NBA player Jerry West, opened this past fall. The restaurant’s warm and inviting atmosphere coupled with its cuisine, featuring exceptional cuts of beef from West Virginia and around the globe, will embody comfortable dining at its finest.
Every aspect of the venue – from the décor to the menu – will pay homage to the West Virginia native, commonly known as “Mr. Clutch.” In addition to rich, elegant colors that tie The Greenbrier’s style in with the traditional steakhouse feel, diners will have the opportunity to treat themselves to a meal amid the largest public collection of West memorabilia. West is personally outfitting the restaurant with more than 100 pieces, including the gold medal he won at the 1960 Summer Olympics, All-Star jerseys, mementos from his college days and more.
Natural and dark woods combined with bold and traditional fabrics complement the collection of memorabilia, creating a “diners club” experience. The warm, intimate ambiance is enhanced by rich burgundy, royal blue, brown plaid, chocolate brown leathers and soft interior lighting.
Prime 44 West focuses on extraordinary ingredients presented in a traditional yet refined manner, including innovative steakhouse favorites. Appetizers include a “raw bar” with Kumamoto Oysters on the half shell with Fresh Wasabi, and Chilled Shellfish Platter with Horseradish Crème Fraiche. Other signature starters like Lobster Bisque garnished with Chestnut and Cardamom and Chesapeake Bay Crab Cake Cigars with a grapefruit and papaya remoulade. Entrées include steakhouse staples with a local twist, including West Virginia Blue Ribbon Pork Duo, Snake River Farm Wagyu Tenderloin, Elysian Fields Double Cut Rack of Lamb and a “Nothing But Net” 44 oz. Porterhouse Steak.
