LIBERATING LUXURY FROM TRADITION, THE SOPHISTICATED, INTELLIGENT DESIGN AND GUEST-CENTRIC SERVICE ETHIC AT THE JAMES CHICAGO PROVIDE A MODERN AESTHETIC WITH A CLASSIC COMMITMENT TO HOSPITALITY
For travelers ringing in the New Year in Chicago, David Burke’s PrimeHouse is offering an $82 prix-fixe celebratory menu laden with brilliant modern American offerings. Guests can choose from a variety of options, including the 55 Day Dry Aged Bone-in Ribeye, which was named Chicago Magazine’s Best Dry Aged Steak.
Complemented by dishes including Oysters on the Half Shell with horseradish, cocktail sauce and mignonette; Pretzel Crusted Crab Cakes with caviar crema, raisin compote, tender greens and apple; and Wagyu Beef Sashimi with Himalayan salt, mushroom chips and truffle mayo, it’s sure to be a night to remember.
The first chef to own his own bull, Chef Burke’s commitment to quality is evident in the USDA prime grade, hand-selected beef served in David Burke’s PrimeHouse. The restaurant dry-ages its meats in a Himalayan salt-tiled aging room on premise, with the result being perfectly marble-ized, tender beef with a rich depth of flavor. Under the leadership of Executive Chef Rick Gresh, David Burke’s Primehouse features a rotating menu that focuses on seasonal, local and organic ingredients and inventive dishes that reflect evolving culinary trends.
