Prime & Provisions
The two-story restaurant draws you in with classic style complemented with retro touches. A tall, swooping banquette separates the bar from the dining room, which has its own round, patterned booths. Funky metal accents and textured detailing combine with traditional elements like white tablecloths and high-backed chairs for a look that adds a touch of chic to the typical Chicago steakhouse atmosphere.
Step up to the marble-topped bar and take in the incredible wine tower, spanning both stories of the restaurant. It’s a clear sign that Prime & Provisions Steakhouse is serious about their beverage program. Beyond a fantastic selection of wines, spanning an impressive range of vintages and varietals, the cocktail menu boasts a masterful collection of drinks. Classic concoctions, such as the Vesper and Hemingway Daiquiri, take center stage, with the Old Fashioned being a particular favorite. Some options, like the Prime 75, add a unique touch to a familiar recipe.
The starters at Prime & Provisions Steakhouse are unlike any you’ll find at other Chicagoland meat emporia. While you can certainly find classic appetizers like the tuna tartare or shrimp cocktail, we recommend sampling some of the more unusual dishes – the fried chicken, for example! Usually served as an entrée, Prime & Provisions Steakhouse proudly presents the golden bird as a tasty beginning for your whole table. Crisp skin and juicy meat are accented with a chili bourbon maple drizzle, and it’s definitely a sharing size (though you’ll be tempted to keep it all to yourself).
