Regulars at this River North steak and martini destination include lawyers, designers and salespeople from the nearby Merchandise Mart and Chicago Apparel Center. The menu changes to feature seasonal specialties, but you can always count on a robust selection of steaks, chops and classic steakhouse sides. The spacious restaurant encompasses three rooms—a main dining room, a sleek bar area and a back dining room that also can be reserved for private parties—plus a private dining room. With roomy banquette seating, dark woodwork and a subdued color palette, the entire space has a warm, clubby feel. In nice weather, French doors open to a 60-seat sidewalk cafe along Kinzie Street.
