Eating in syle at RPM Steak

October 23 2014 - 1:00 PM

In a nod to true Hollywood glamour, a new contemporary restaurant has landed in the windy city from the Melman siblings (RJ, Jerrod, & Molly), the Ransics, (Giuliana & Bill) and the expertise of acclaimed chef Doug Psaltis. Chicago can boast yet another place to eat steak. The ambiance is stylish, dazzling and exciting, almost conveying the days of the “Rat Pack” right out of the 1960’s. Eating at RPM Steak is like attending a well-orchestrated special event. The support staff is wired with secret service-like earphones ultimately creating a flawless dining experience.

The menu features over a dozen different steaks sourced from a curated list of purveyors. Among the selection is the signature 8 oz prime rib cap (my favorite) and “The Duke,” a center-cut prime rib filet. The steaks were prepared to perfection and paired with a pickled pepper that seemed an unusual match but definitely a delicious duo . The menu also rounds out with a good range of other meats, chicke, and seafood selection that will not overwhelm the patrons.

Sides are generous in portion and great to share. There is a rotating list of mushrooms and I felt lucky enough to be able to indulge in the hand-foraged chanterelle mushrooms from Oregon,  a distinctive treat.

Dessert is a necessity and RPM Steak does not disappoint. Aside from cotton candy and soufflés, the real must-try is the 14K chocolate cake. Delightfully rich and gilded with edible gold…close your eyes, take a bite, and imagine ol’ blue eyes belting out “my kinda town!” Chicago, RPM Steak has arrived.
