Nice restaurants near the Fairmount hotel in Chicago?

r_walid Dec 7, 2007 01:07 PM

I'm looking for some really nice restaurants for dinner in chicago. I'm going to be there for 1 night only and will arrive around 9 pm. So a fancy steak or seafood or great restaurant around the fairmount hotel would be great.

Thanks in advance for the suggestions.

    Dave Burke's Primehouse and Keefers are both excellent steakhouses within a five minute cab ride or so. Saloon Steakhouse is a great old school steakhouse also relatively close. They all get tons of recommendations on this board. Do a search and you can read more.

      Aria, in the Fairmont is great--fusion'esque, but really my favorite is that they make great nan with various dipping sauces.
      Palm Steakhouse a block away--standard steak house, but always good.
