The folks at Catch 35 source their seafood carefully: dry-packed scallops from near Boston and Blue Hill Maine mussels from a plankton-rich area that makes them extra meaty. If they can't get their preferred kind, they just don't offer it to the guests who dine in their white-cloth eatery.

Tracing its roots to a Miami restaurant that began the practice of serving stone crabs back in the 1920s, Joe's does it right, with chilled, hand-harvested claws served with mustard sauce. The bone-in steaks, bacon-wrapped sea scallops, and luxe interior have attracted sports celebrities including Scottie Pippen, Adrian Peterson, Joakim Noah, and Patrick Kane.
With popular restaurants sprinkled across the country, renowned chef David Burke certainly knows the secret to success. Primehouse, Burke's Rush Street hot spot, proves that the formula also works in the Windy City.
Inside The James Hotel, Primehouse’s executive chef Rich Gresh culls seasonal and organic ingredients to create decadent steakhouse fare, some of it with a slight twist. He starts by dry-aging USDA rib-eye inside a Himalayan salt-tiled aging room—located in-house—for anywhere between 28 and 75 days. Not surprisingly, the 75-day-aged cut has received much approval from critics including Rahm Fama of the Food Network, who dubbed the steak as the best ever.
Yet, Gresh doesn’t stop at steaks. He redefines gourmet go-tos, layering foie gras over bourbon-glazed apples and drizzling scallops with a hazelnut vinaigrette. He serves bacon, kobe corn dogs, and octopus on sticks, and lets bites of steak and ahi tuna cook tableside over a hot Himalayan-salt stone. During lunch, Gresh offers creamy lobster bisque, tempura-fried green beans, and one of Chicago Magazine’s favorites: the 40-day-aged prime steak burger.
