Pete Miller's Seafood and Prime Steak - Evanston - Evanston

The iconic Evanston-based steakhouse was named in honor of a good friend of the owner, and it opened in 1994. Prime-aged steaks and fresh seafood are two of the specialties, and it's set up for casual outings as well as special occasions.

Every meal should start with some of the signature items from the appetizer menu. They range from firecracker shrimp tossed in a spicy Asian chili sauce to Roquefort-stuffed mushrooms baked with herbed breadcrumbs.

For what's considered "the main event," Pete’s Millers specializes in sustainable and locally raised premium Angus, Wagyu and U.S.D.A prime steaks. All the steaks and chops are aged for a minimum of 21 days then char-broiled. They range from a seven-ounce petite filet to a 32-ounce Wagyu Tomahawk.

Seafood lovers also get plenty of options beyond standard fare. They include siraracha lobster halibut, sesame-crusted tuna and brown-buttered scallops.
