MEAT PROBLEMS The problem with all the steak houses in this town is all the problems you encounter with all of them. At Delmonico and Prime you have the reservation problem, at Morton’s you have the saran wrap problem, at Ruth’s Chris you have the butter problem and at Charlie Palmer’s steak you have the can’t stop eating ‘cuz the foods so good problem.
