Buzz Beler, founder and owner of The Prime Rib, is the recipient of one of the food-service industry’s most coveted awards—the Silver Plate Award. He will receive the award in Chicago on May 23.
The honor, presented by the International Foodservice Manufacturers Association, recognizes excellence in food-service operations and the industry. Beler earned the award in the Independent Restaurants category.
He and his brother Nick founded The Prime Rib in Baltimore in 1965, designing the restaurant to look like an elegant Manhattan supper club from the 1940s. They opened another restaurant in D.C. in 1976 and one in Philadelphia in 1997.
If you’re looking for an excuse to visit The Prime Rib, there’s a “Celebrate Our 45th for $45” promotion going on. It includes a salad or soup, entree (including the eponymous beef), and dessert.
