437 Rush, part of the Phil Stefani Signature Restaurants group, brings the traditions of the Italian steakhouse to Chicago, with a menu orchestrated by Italian-born culinary composer Federico Comacchio. The dinner menu offers modern updates on Italian classics, just like a remake of The Bicycle Thief with the bicycle replaced by a Segway. Begin your dining experience with the insalata di mare & farro toscano ($15), an appetizer bringing together fresh steamed seafood with Tuscan spelt, parsley, oil, and bottarga, or opt for a Caesar salad ($8), served in an edible shell of parmigiano cheese for double dining delight. Chart a course for choppy channels with 437 Rush's slate of prime steaks, including a 12-ounce filet mignon ($35), a 14-ounce veal chop ($37), and a 30-ounce prime rib-eye chop ($46), or patch up your high-school feud with King Neptune by ordering the Pacific Chilean sea bass ($29). Parachute instructors preferring pasta can freefall into one of 437 Rush's house specials, including lasagna ($18), spaghetti in a tomato basil sauce ($15), or ossobuco ($39), a braised veal shank with brown porcini mushroom sauce and saffron risotto zests. Though just a side, the restaurant's baked potato ($5)—also available as a twice-baked potato ($7)—has earned a reputation among diners and theoretical physicists as a delicious potato portal to a wondrous world of sour cream clouds and chive meadows.
Toast the forthcoming summer equinox with a signature cocktail ($11) from Phil Stefani's 437 Rush's roster of refreshing drinks as you and your fellow foodies relax in the restaurant's charming interior of black-and-white tiled floors, Art Deco murals, and bright lighting. Reservations are required, so get your Groupon and schedule your evening of elegant Italian eats at Phil Stefani's 437 Rush.

- If you're up for steak, expect expertly prepared porterhouses, with a well-seasoned crust hiding tender flesh. But if it's lighter fare you're after, dig into the roasted red king salmon, a dish that perfectly balances the textures and flavors of the firm fish, soft Yukon potato puree and ten-year balsamic. – Time Out Chicago
- Caesar salad takes on a classic look (the romaine is laid lengthwise on an oval platter) and proves delicious. – Gayot
- I'm not sure I've had more perfectly cooked scallops. Seriously. And they were very well seasoned. – Abigail T., Yelp
