This Chicago-originated super-luxe steakhouse chain delivers an extensive wine list, plush furnishings, fancy accoutrements and deferential service, but no printed menu. Instead, waiters tote a hand-printed board and wheel around a cart filled with saran-wrapped visual aids for up-close gawking. Offerings include steaks the size of a steer’s head, shrub-like broccoli, 5-pound baked potatoes and asparagus spears as big around as a child’s forearm. The small, dark bar packs a powerful punch with a regular crowd of political and business movers and shakers. Reservations recommended.
