The Grillroom Chophouse & Winebar - Chicago
This urban chophouse and wine bar is an ideal destination for power lunches, pre-theater dining and after-work cocktails. With warm surroundings of hardwood floors, wood-paneled walls and tall leather booths, Grillroom is one of downtown's most under-rated restaurants.
It is located in the heart of the Chicago Theater District and a couple of blocks away from the Financial District. Weekday happy hour deals consist of $5 well cocktails, wine and craft beer on draft.
Those staying for dinner should appreciate Grillroom's steak and chops selections. They're offering something for every appetite, from the eight-ounce, single-cut filet to the share-able 22-ounce prime ribeye. Steak additions include a six-ounce, cold-water lobster tail, hickory-smoked mushrooms and brown butter-basted jumbo shrimp.
And speaking of seafood, for those looking for meat-free options, there are offerings of seared organic salmon, herb-crusted whitefish and lobster truffle mac 'n' cheese.
