Steakhouses typically cater to a male audience, but a new kind of steakhouse has popped up at 111 Montgomery St. in Jersey City. Liberty Prime, the product of a collaboration between George Makrogiannis and Moran’s restaurant in Manhattan and the Davenport Group, is an exception to this expectation.

Liberty Prime in Jersey City“We want to cater to women with our specialized menu items, as well as anyone else who enjoys a good steak,” Makrogiannis said. “We cater to steak-loving women in the same way we cater to steak-loving men, we give everyone the options they expect.”

Makrogiannis said sample plates will be available for those who do not want a full meal, and happy hour will be from 6 to 7 p.m. on weeknights.

The menu will feature items including Mini Skirt Steak and Rare Style, which is a 6 oz. filet mignon wrapped in bacon and served with a 4 oz. lobster tail with a lemon butter sauce.

Liberty Prime’s bar, Prime Time, is located right next door and will offer a “light bite bar menu” with a similar sensibility.

Makrogiannis said steak and steakhouses can be “fashionable.” For Liberty Prime, this is expressed through the menu and modern décor.
