We shared the steak tartare and the crab cake, paired with a Santa Barbara Pinot Noir I'd never heard of, and we could not have been more blown away. My girlfriend felt sure she would be turning her nose up at the tartare, her first...More

For starters, we had the Shrimp Cocktail and Bacon Roasted Tomato salad. Both were very generous (I recommend sharing one...More

Excellent experience - a trendy/lively vibe and the food was top notch (best steaks on our trip). Our server and Matt the manager provided five star service. In a city full of steakhouses (we visited several others), this one is not to be missed.

Over the bridge on Wabash to Kinzie turn left. Up the road about 4 blocks on your right. However long that takes you to walk. I would say at least 20 minutes if you are taking a leisurely stroll.
