Butcher Block Prime Steakhouse
Review by: Michael Stern
Montana Avenue in Billings is something of a restaurant row with trendy places drawing people back downtown for dinner. One of the stalwarts in the area for many years was the Rex, an old hotel dining room. The Rex has become Butcher Block Prime Steakhouse, a modern version of what once was. Accommodations are dark and clubby, all varnished wood, brass, raw brick, and cut glass under an old stamped tin ceiling.
Beef is king here, and the prime rib we had was one of the best around: thick, juice-laden, and full-flavored. We were introduced to the Rex many years ago by a local saddle maker whose doctor had told him he needed to eat less beef, so he ordered cream-sauced pasta, which looked to us like it was richer than a ribeye steak!
