Named “#1 Steakhouse in Chicago” by Chicago magazine, Primehouse redefines the modern American steakhouse by pushing the envelope of culinary creativity. The commitment to quality is evident in the use of USDA prime grade, hand-selected beef. The restaurant dry-ages its meats in a Himalayan salt-tiled aging room on premise. The result is perfectly marble-ized, tender beef with a rich depth of flavor.
