Dining Chicago

Bavette's Bar & Boeuf

Bavette's Bar & Boeuf

Jazzy, sophisticated, vintage vibe: Bavette’s Bar & Boeuf notches up even the best Chicago steakhouse with finely tuned cocktails and beef. Consistently rated one of the top restaurants in the city (in fact, it is number three of over 7,700 restaurants on TripAdvisor), Bavette’s Bar & Boeuf bridges the gap between old Chicago and new Chicago, between classic steakhouse dishes and innovative creations to please discerning diners of all ages and backgrounds. Tucked away on a hidden section of Kedzie Boulevard, in the shadow of the Merchandise Mart, Hogsalt Hospitality -- one of the most beloved and successful local restaurant groups -- touches each part of the design, the food and the service with utmost attention to detail.

Upon entering the largely candlelit establishment, you are immediately greeted by a long bar with cushy leather stools, equally cushy leather booths surrounding large round tables, deco chandeliers and mirrored walls emblazoned with art nouveau typography. “Cocktail ice sold here,” “Baked crab cake,” “famous duchess cut,” and “Free wine daily.”

Ok, that last one might a stretch in reality, but it actually is painted on one of the mirrored walls. And what exactly is “cocktail ice”?

The point of all of this decor is, of course, to transport you to another era. Forget about your troubles. You are here to be wined and dined.

Address: 218 W. Kinzie St., Chicago
