  1. Hi, I recalled this article from Chicago Ragazine. Found it pretty interesting, I read it a few times:

    These are pretty close options for you

    500 N. Clark St.

    David Burke’s Primehouse
    616 N. Rush St

    District Bar <Very quick walk>
    170 W. Ontario St

    The Capital Grille
    633 N. St. Clair Street

    500 North Clark St., Chicago, IL 60610

    Capital Grille
    5340 N River Rd, Rosemont, IL 60018

    1. On another post, a visitor had a good burger at the Paramount Room (adjacent to River North).

      It's good and I don't know why it doesn't get suggested more often.

      Paramount Room
      415 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60654

      1. I know it's a chain, but I'll throw Fleming's in there as well. They have a great happy hour every day- including the weekends from 5-7pm, where their listed cocktails are all $6. Their burger which comes with bacon and cheese is delicious and for $6, quite a bargain.

        1. Boston Blackies was pretty good.

          755 S Clark St, Chicago, IL 60605

            Just note that the Boston Blackie's location in River North is at 164 E. Grand St. The address shown in the link that got added to your post is a different restaurant entirely.

              Wow...I didn't even realize that this forum did that. I simply wrote the name.

              Yes, the 164 E. Grand (Grand and St. Clair) address is what I was thinking of.

              1. re: Culinaria

                When it creates one of those automatic links, it has a "Remove" button next to it that lets you (the person who wrote the post) remove the link from your post.
