Ben Durham has been appointed executive chef of Prime American Kitchen & Bar in Huntington.
Durham was, until September, executive chef at Melville’s Four Food Studio. He came aboard Prime in November, after the departure of executive chef Gregg Lauletta (who earned three stars from Newsday in 2012).
With multiple dining rooms and outdoor decks, Prime sprawls along the waterfront of Huntington Harbor and is a favorite dock-and-dine spot for the well-heeled and well-yachted. The menu is upscale steakhouse-plus, the aged meat getting assists from New American specialties and sushi.
As winter gives way to spring, Durham expects to integrate seasonal items into Prime's menu.
Prime 117 New York Ave., Huntington, 631-385-1515.
