Plywood Beach Edition: Jean Luc to open Prime 103

As The Beach gears up, and gears you up, for summer, talk of new restaurants has begun. The full report will be had at The Beach, but here now, a city-relevant excerpt.

2007_04_prime103.jpgEast Hampton: By Memorial Day, Ed Kleefeld will debut Prime 103, a steakhouse, sushi bar and lounge, open until 4 am on weekends. The man who calls himself Jean Luc has brought in executive chef Brian Cheewing, whose East End credits include George Martin Steakhouse and James on Main. He's also done a stint with Jean Georges, at Vong. Visas and paperwork for a team of Japanese sushi chefs are being acquired as we speak, too. Meats will be offered in all sorts of cuts, from Newport steak to porterhouse. Live jazz and outdoor cabanas are also part of the concept, as are ostrich skin tufted banquettes. Kleefield, in replacing his JL East, is going for, in his own words, a "sumptuous, beautiful steakhouse." (103 Montauk Highway, East Hampton, (631) 324-1100)
