Barry’s Downtown Prime
Barry's Downtown Prime, tucked out of the way in the basement level of Circa, is a sprawling, circular dining space with private rooms for parties large and small. The concept by Barry Dakake (formerly of Scotch 80 Prime at the Palms) features a mix of dry and wet-aged steaks cooked over charcoal and fruitwood. The signature ribeye cap, marinated in shallots, garlic, and olive oil, is a holdover from the chef's days at N9NE Steakhouse. Try it with the mac n' cheese, truffle gnocchi, or gourmet tater tots on the side. Overall, the environment is dark and moody, with vintage design elements and the occasional indoor olive tree making an appearance. The best seats are at the 12-person chef's table, surrounded by wine racks, where Dakake himself is eager to customize a meal on the fly.
