Located conveniently in the The James Chicago Hotel (a B10 favorite), David Burke's Primehouse is a contradiction of sorts, like a rational Chicago Cubs fan. It is a classic steakhouse that pushes the envelope of creativity with dishes such as Kobe beef corn dogs, beef tenderloin stuffed braised pork belly, and their famous cheesecake lollipop tree (not the manliest order, but Lord are they good).

When it comes to the meat, the bachelor party will be drooling at the perfectly marbleized, tender beef, dry-aged in the restaurant’s own Himalayan salt-tiled aging room. We don’t know what half those words mean either but trust us, the result is tasty.

Venue Tip: 

Don’t have time to visit? Grab a brunch box to go on Sunday before you head to the airport. We like the Hangover (Mini Burgers and fries, Mac N’ Cheese with bacon and a Monte Cristo) or the Little Bull (Beef Tips, Grilled Steak with whipped potato and Shortrib Dumplings).

The Good: 
The beef is among the best around and if you guys like a bit of creativity - like what that stripper did with the ping pong balls - then you’ll love their menu.
The Bad: 
Dinner at Primehouse comes with a hefty price tag so expect over three figures per man - or one really angry loser at credit card roulette.
