Prime 16 has brought its gastro-pub burger and tap house concept to Pelham. Dave Marotta and Thomas Shanley are the managing partners in Pelham. There are two other locations in New Haven and Orange, CT.
The 60-seat restaurant espouses the virtues of ‘gourmet’ burgers and local craft beers which are listed and updated daily on a big blackboard that hangs over the bar. The Prime 16 mission statement: “At Prime 16, taste comes first. We use only all-natural beef raised by a family of farmers committed to sustainable and humane practices. All our Angus beef is traceable and meets the highest standards. That means: No added hormones, no antibiotics, cows are fed all-vegetarian feeds.” Prime 16 has also partnered with local bakeries, breweries, creameries and beverage companies.
Great menu starters include: meaty Chicken Wings with choice of such sauces as chipotle agave, bourbon stout bbq, classic buffalo, or general tso with sesame seeds served with house made bleu cheese dressing celery and carrots. Fresh prepared salads include: Farmer’s, mixed baby greens topped with crumbled goat cheese, and sliced grilled Portobello mushrooms, toasted pecans, roasted red peppers & artichoke hearts.
Delicious 8 oz. Burgers in the spotlight here include: All American, topped with Vermont aged white cheddar, butterhead lettuce and sliced tomato, topped with Elm City yellow mustard & smoked ketchup; Cowboy, topped with Wisconsin cheddar, smoked Canadian bacon, fried egg & romaine lettuce with a side of pico de gallo…and many more.
There is a Craft Beer Happy Hour offered Monday thru Friday from 4 pm to 7 pm and Saturdays from 4 to 5 pm, featuring ½ priced drafts & half off 12 piece wings.
