For those looking for a traditional steakhouse – think white table cloths, jazz playing in the background, and prime cuts of beef – look no further than No. Six Prime, 27000 S. Karevich Drive, Novi, in the former home of No. VI Chophouse. General Manager Tony Amann said while the space’s former resident, where he also worked, featured prime steaks, over the years they moved to a more farm-to-table concept, and caused regulars to be disengaged when they couldn’t get a steak like they expected. That won’t be a problem at No. Six Prime, which had a soft opening in October and a week long celebration in late November. “We got back to the basics of what a steakhouse is and what the public opinion of it is,” he said. “It’s really been a rejuvenating experience seeing it come to fruition.” There’s an entirely new menu with filet mignon, ribeye steak, NY strip steak, porterhouse, and tomahawk steak. On the more creative side there’s a hot lobster appetizer, halibut, and braised short ribs. As for drinks, they offer over 120 wines, with a focus on Napa cabernets, and cocktails that, much like the food, go back to basics, such as the original six cocktails, including classic Manhattans, Martinis, and Sidecar, among other selections.
