RPM Steak, Chicago, IL

RPM Steak Restaurant Review

: Let’s be honest: Chicago has a deluge of meateries. Here, chef Doug Psaltis throws his hat into the ring in an exclusive, mahogany-paneled setting, complete with balcony for overlooking the sceney-scene. Therein lies much of the appeal, but that's not to say the food doesn't pass muster. Start with the sweet-savory vanilla bean-glazed thick-cut bacon and rich, deviled marrow bones. But don’t fill up on the house-made bread; then again, you’ll want to eat it since you pay upwards of $8 for it, after all. As for the heart of the menu, 15 steaks vie for attention, from a reasonably priced (and undeniably tasty) hanger steak to a 42-ounce tomahawk that rings in at --- wait for it --- $155. There’s a nice selection of seafood, too, such as a halibut T-bone. Adding to the allure, Paul McGee designed the cocktails, and the global wine list, courtesy of Richard Hanauer, contains a hefty 350 global selections. It’s going to be hard to anticipate dessert, but given the airiness of the hazelnut soufflé, do try.
