Fodor's Review

New York celebrity chef David Burke runs Primehouse in the boutique James hotel, and though local reception was initially cautious—after all, what could a New Yorker teach a Chicagoan about steak?—the restaurant has been roundly embraced for its convivial setting and sense of playfulness—note the fill-your-own doughnuts for dessert. Cuts of meat include a 28-day, dry-aged rib eye and the bone-in filet mignon. The best seats are the red-leather booths along the walls.
