As an old and biased fan of Volare, Benny really has done it again with his steak house in Near North. The ambiance is typical steak house with a lot of dark wood, sharp decor, and big fancy steak knives, but what the place really delivers on is food. Benny’s Rib Eye Duo was perfectly cooked and a nice spin off the traditional rib eye steak. Oysters and their appetizer-sized pasta dishes are great to start as well as excellently prepared salads.
Service was friendly and helpful, but a bit slow. Though, as I went the second week they were open, they were surely still figuring stuff out and will soon be up to Volare-standard service.
