Who needs to cook their steak medium, medium rare, or even well - just go raw at these restaurants and you won't regret it.
The Gage is the most glamorous Irish pub on earth and I love it for that. If the bison tartare is on the menu - run, don't walk, to get it.
Forget stodgy and stuffy, the Four Seasons is officially a hotspot for the trendsetting crowd. Chef Kevin Hickey is the coolest Four Seasons chef in - uh - the whole world.
Pops for Champagne is the country's most esteemed Champagne bar w none of the stuffiness. 200 wines/bubbles on the menu pop my cork any day.
I don't TOTALLY get the hype surrounding the food at Maude's Liquor Bar, but I do LOVE the vibe. It is one sexy West Loop minx.
This is one of my favorite "special" restaurants. It's located within what looks like an old house, produces some of the best seafood this side of the Atlantic Ocean, and it's just a sheer treat to eat Chef Takashi's food.
I give the Rockit guys mad credit for Sunda. Everything is amazing, but their super white tuna with truffled potato (served as only 2 pieces, it's so precious) is one of my top 10 bites EVER.
MK is one of those special restaurants. You may not be a regular, but when a birthday, anniversary or parents-in-town event takes place, this is your resto.
Put on your best polo (and do us favor, make sure you brush your hair) and head to RL for food worthy (and equally pricey) of Ralph Lauren himself.
