Mastro's Steakhouse - Chicago
The two-story steakhouse sets the scene with dark wood paneling, white tablecloths, and plush carpets. Its location in the heart of Chicago’s nightlife hub makes it the perfect place to see and be seen, so come prepared for decadence. It will be well worth your time, as “the value’s there in the top-quality steaks,” says Phil Vettel of “Chicago Tribune,” adding that he appreciates “the beyond-generous cocktail and wine pours.”
You’re spoiled for choice on the cocktail menu. Mastro’s Steakhouse provides a wide range of classic and original concoctions to get your evening started on the right note. Whether you prefer the timeless martini, garnished with caper berries or a blue cheese-stuffed olive, or like to sweeten things up with the Bananas Foster, made with rum, brown sugar syrup, and banana puree, you will not be left thirsty.
The wine selection is equally robust, with over 50 wines available by the glass. While there are ample sparkling and white options, the list leans into steak’s best pairing with an incredible collection of red varietals. For the table, you may want to go in on a bottle from the California-focused menu.
