The three of us ordered an adequate calamari appetizer, which was fair, if not a little dry. The house vinaigrette made the salad come alive in my mouth. It was a perfect blend of red wine and olive oil.
I ordered the daily special, which, on that day, was a 24-ounce prime rib cut seared and grilled. If I told you the meat melted like custard in my mouth, you wouldn't believe me, but that doesn't mean I'm lying. I ordered it medium, and the beautiful pink hue and soft taste made me forget all about my baked potato.
For dessert we ordered profiteral, which either means "for profit" or "chocolate creampuff" in another language. The thing was literally swimming in a bitter chocolate sauce that actually was a good accompaniment. I left convinced that profiteral is actually a drug that makes the dessert taste divine. I plan to have my profiteral checked every time I return to Chicago.
Overall: It was the best prime rib I've had in a good, long time. Valet was $10 plus tip, and it took a while to get the car around. I have no wine recommendation since I'm a teetotaler.
