Modeled after the original Mastro`s Steakhouse in Scottsdale, the Chicago incarnation of this high-end mini chain has quickly taken a spot towards the top of the Chicago Steakhouse food pyramid. Opting for an atmosphere that feels more like a trendy lounge then an old-style, mob/godfather type steakhouse, Mastro’s is the perfect starting spot for the bachelor party looking to get the night hopping right from the get-go. The high-energy bar is a great place to grab a tasty drink while you wait for a table; the piano player is a huge draw to quality talent looking to class up their night while downing potent martinis. And when you guys settle in for dinner you’ll be treated to some of the finest cuts of meat in the entire city.
If the steep prices have some of the guys scared of going, you can choose to bring your own wine and only pay a $25 corkage fee. We hear the Trader Joe’s Two-Buck Chuck Cab goes great with a $60 porterhouse.
