Kinzie Chophouse, Chicago, IL

Kinzie Chophouse Restaurant Review

: This is a Chicago steakhouse that doesn't get the respect it deserves. The interior features mocha leather booths, vintage black and white photography of Chicago and a chalkboard menu of specials. The joint is located in the shadow of the Merchandise Mart; not surprisingly, business lunch is the main meal of the day. However, an early dinner and bar crowd keeps the wolf from the door. Steaks and prime rib are the menu strengths, but you’ll also find options like portobello ravioli with Marsala cream sauce and goat cheese, and spicy seafood fettuccine arrabiata. There are plenty of comfort foods, too, including a fine grilled meatloaf, an apple wood-smoked pork chop and chicken potpie. About a dozen steak choices are available, plus several well-wrought seafood selections. Service is quite good. The wine list, while not particularly noteworthy, suffices.
