Benny’s Chop House Restaurant Review

: Benny Siddu (Volare) is behind this spendy River North steakhouse, a den of prime Allen Brothers meat and seafood with Jonathan Lane (Four Seasons) in the kitchen. The setting is as old-school as it gets --- comfortable booths, dim, clubby environs and a piano player on weekends --- though the repertoire is somewhat redefined, as evidenced in the serious cocktail program, showily plated crab-lobster Louie and grilled romaine. The dry-aged steaks really are all that --- tender, marbled and full of flavor. An Alaskan halibut T-bone and jumbo sea scallops with spinach pappardelle and creamy garlic sauce also are available. A well-traveled wine list and pasta sides, including spring pea tortelloni, complete the very posh, special occasion experience.

Quintessential Chicago Steakhouse experience. The Porterhouse is life changing. Lets just say if you had to pick just one upscale steakhouse in Chicago, Benny's Chop House is the one.
