Mastro’s, the swanky chain of power steak houses popular out west, is opening its first Midwest outpost in the completely revamped Blue Water Grill space. In this meat-driven city, we know the drill (wet-aged beef, a formidable collection of hearty sides, the whole nine yards). But Mark Levy, a partner, promises a distinctive ambiance. “The one thing that I think really differentiates us is it’s more a supper-club-type environment,” he says. Nightly live piano entertainment will feature everything from Frank Sinatra to Elton John. Just don’t get too carried away in your rendition of “Tiny Dancer” after a few signature cocktails, like a dry-ice martini (pictured). 520 N. Dearborn St.; 312-521-5100.
