Both the owner of Prime 13, Gerard Tortora and the executive chef, Jeremy Karp have over 40 years of culinary experience. In addition, both reside from Kearny, New Jersey and are New York Restaurant school graduates. The combination of restaurant experience and culinary excellence is truly incredible. When you add the Jersey Shore’s most talented grill man, Alberto Argudo and our highly skilled and knowledgeable staff, a one-of-a-kind dining experience is created that is nothing short of amazing.
We want our guests to appreciate the skill and professionalism that goes into every plate that leaves the kitchen. That’s why our dining room looks directly into an open kitchen. You can watch our chefs hard at work. You can also see close-up action of the grill on flat screen televisions. Our rustic yet modern decor provides the perfect setting for a full NJ steakhouse experience—but it’s ultimately what’s on the plate that sets us apart.
