Chicago Chop House

60 W. Ontario St.
Chicago, IL 60654

Critic’s Notes

Since 1986 this Victorian brownstone has lured locals and out-of-towners for the real Chicago prime deal. Expertly cooked steaks come wet-aged or dry-aged—your call; the ultramarbled and supertender cuts of Japanese Mishima undergo no aging at all. Traditional appetizers and sides range from delicious (truffle-scented lobster bisque) to puzzling (wildly overcreamed spinach). Martinis are pricey and a bit skimpy (even by River North standards), but the wine list holds many treasures.
