The prime rib offered as an occasional special at Barclay Prime has a sensuously silky texture, quite a contrast from the dense beefiness of the restaurant’s dry-aged steaks. Searing, low-temperature roasting and resting period take this massive 30-to-35-ounce cut from raw to rosy-rare perfection. It’s a $65 ticket to carnivore heaven, sized to make an impression, served with a side of sumptuous, creamy horseradish sauce. Plus, the leftovers make sublime sandwiches.
