Phil Stefani’s 437 Rush (Restaurant, River North)
Location: 437 Rush Street
Phone: (312) 222-0101
Cuisine: Steak and seafood (Italian)
Phil Stephani knows how to deliver good food and at his Rush Street location he knows how to deliver a GREAT steak. If you’re a first-timer, your server will bring out the tray of meats and be prepared to be amazed. All their cuts are displayed and explained as well as lots of fresh seafood. Go for the bone-in ribeye, you’ll feel like Fred Flinstone and if you are a petite girl like me your other resturant-goers will laugh at you, but damn that steak is full of awesome flavor. The creamed spinach and mushrooms and mashed potatoes are great sides.
The atmosphere is refined, but relaxed. It has that classic steakhouse feel with dark wood and crisp white tablesclothes. There is also a rather large bar in the front that is great for a cocktail or two before dinner. Service is always attentive and friendly. They also have a large space upstairs for private dining.
