The restaurant group had apparently had its sights set on a Windy City outpost for years, and finally settled on this prominent corner overlooking the Chicago River and Michigan Avenue. Inside, guests should expect large-scale photographs with a nod to iconic local personalities. There are also transparencies of Chicago architecture featured throughout the space, and beautiful black and white paintings by a local artist. Metallic pillars, chandeliers and marble bar tops punctuate the dramatic atmosphere.
Decadent standouts on this steak-centric menu include choices like white truffle caviar deviled eggs, prime roll (tempura shrimp, cream cheese, scallion, beef carpaccio), blackened snapper, Florida grouper with crispy garlic potatoes and a pork porterhouse.
For those looking for discounted fare, Ocean Prime offers happy hour 4-6pm Monday through Friday. Guests get half off on all appetizers, sushi and oysters in the lounge. On Sundays, the restaurant offers a special two-course surf & turf menu with an eight-ounce filet and choice of “surf” and side.
There are 14 Ocean Prime locations throughout the country, including Washington, D.C., Boston, Beverly Hills, Philadelphia, Detroit, Dallas, Denver and Columbus, Ohio.
