St. Anselm
review by Zach B. Siegel

St. Anselm is the democratic response to the New York steakhouse aristocracy. Owner Joe Carroll’s wine list is remarkably broad and approachable, with values from around the world. To complement the kitchen’s massive grill, which touches nearly every dish on the menu, drink earthy and bold—perhaps ...Read the full review

Press
review by Elaine Chukan Brown

A bright, airy upgrade to the classic steakhouse, Press brings together dry-aged steaks and grilled chicken with more experimental dishes like chef Trevor Kunk’s carrot hot dog. But for wine obsessives, the central draw is its unparalleled collection of Napa wines going back to the 1950s, compiled by ...Read the full review

Maple & Ash
review by Caitlin Griffith

Back on her home turf after a stint in NYC, Belinda Chang is clearly having fun at Maple & Ash, a swanky new steakhouse on Chicago’s Gold Coast. Alongside the expected powerhouse cabernets and Bordeaux blends, she offers alternatives like “Racy Whites” (riesling, grüner and pinot gris) ...Read the full review

Prima
review by Erin Byers Murray

Prima has only gotten better since it opened in 2014. Chef Sal Avila turns out hearty plates laced with Latin American flavors from a wood-burning grill, many as showstopping as the space, which is lit by an 1,800-piece chandelier. The wine list is on par, too, since Jenn McCarthy, formerly ...Read the full review

Lolinda
review by Barbara Haimes

Leave Mission Street behind, enter Lolinda, and you’ve joined a party in Buenos Aires on a dark, sultry night. Gather around the large table in the bar for cocktails with plates of ceviche, empanadas, pork belly, chorizo and charred octopus while Prince and bossa nova tunes play on ...Read the full review

Bluestem Brasserie
review by Luke Sykora

From its geometric wood floor to its gray banquettes, Bluestem exudes mid-20th century modern. The svelte advertising executives of AMC’s Mad Men would probably feel quite at home here. Or would they? Because this steakhouse is no mere throwback, nor is it a stuffy boy’s club. ...Read the full review

Alexander’s Steakhouse
review by Jesse Hirsch

Alexander’s is one big wink to the steakhouse genre. Given the bull’s silhouette on the signage, the brick-and-glass exterior suggests an evening spent with a baked potato and a massive porterhouse. But one look at the menu, where ingredients like sea beans and matsutake abound, and it ...Read the full review

The Met
review by Liza B. Zimmerman

The Met, the local nickname for the Metropolitan Grill, has been a downtown steakhouse legend since 1903. Past glass-enclosed cases of dry-aging meat, a fifty-foot black marble bar beckons. It holds a carefully selected list of a dozen Bourbons, reputed to include the city’s largest single-batch assortment, from Old ...Read the full review
