GT Prime - Chicago
Boka Restaurant Group, the thriving collective known for locally grown eateries like Boka, GT Fish & Oyster and Girl and the Goat, opens a second steak-focused restaurant. Less than one year after debuting Swift & Sons steakhouse in the Fulton Market District, BRG opens GT Prime in River North.
It aims to set itself apart from steakhouses specializing in larger portions with cuts like beef filet, Wagyu sirloin and venison loin sliced in four-ounce and eight-ounce iterations. And for those in parties of four to six, they highly recommend ordering "The Carnivore," which comes with four four-ounce cuts of featured meats. Seafood selections range from whole branzino to one-pound Maine lobster.
Other small-plate options beyond steak include seared foie gras, short rib agnolotti, veal cheek and stuffed quail pot pie.
