When Bartini Prime opened in January 2016 in the former Bartini space under new ownership, its founders’ intention was to make it the top steakhouse in West Virginia. And not without a sense of humor and local pride—here’s the restaurant’s list of signature steaks:

The Randy Mazey a 14-ounce New York strip

The Mike Carey a 14-ounce ribeye

The Holgorsen a 14-ounce ribeye blackened and topped with bleu cheese crumbles

The Marlon Leblanc 21-ounce bone-in ribeye

The Shane Lyons the center-cut 10-ounce filet mignon

The E. Gordon Gee a 10-ounce filet wrapped in applewood-smoked bacon like a bow tie

The Huggy Bear to Share a limited-availability prime two-inch-thick porterhouse sliced tableside

Enjoy your steak with one of more than 100 varieties of Scotch and bourbon or, if you prefer, one of Bartini Prime’s signature or seasonal martinis.

For a lighter meal, Bartini Prime is making a reputation for itself with sashimi and nigiri and maki sushi—try pairing your meal with one of the bar’s five sakes. — PK
