Tavern On Rush is a modern steakhouse that sits right on the Viagra Triangle in the Gold Coast. Upscale but still decently casual, you can always count on this spot to be the first place with tables outside as soon as the weather turns. They offer lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch, plus a cocktail and dessert menu for when you want to make this your last stop of the night (they’re open until 2am). The food is fine, but the people-watching is better.

Suggested by our writers
We wanted to hate it, but we can’t. RPM Steak can hang with the Chicago steakhouse classics any day.
Maple & Ash
Maple & Ash sits in the middle of the Chicago steakhouse Venn diagram. It’s both new-school and old.
