Unless you’ve organized a wine dinner, Roosevelt Prime Steakhouse does not have a set menu with wine pairings. Payton Smith, the restaurant’s American sommelier, is always on the floor and happy to provide pairing recommendations. Wine is available both by the glass and the bottle at Roosevelt Prime Steakhouse, and most of the wines are Californian, the home state of restaurant owner and oenophile George Chen. Because the focus here is on wonderfully tender steaks with crispy edges, red wine is the most popular with both New and Old World options available. There is a small selection of champagne and sparkling wine, including 1999 Dom Pérignon, as well as white wines like a Grand Cru Riesling from Germany, one of the few non-California wines on the menu. From the reds section, choose from a 2006 or 2007 Palazzo from Napa Valley or a 1970 Château Lafite Rothschild from France.
