Primehouse Chicago IL
Tasted Tuesday, February 10, 2009 by jlgnml with 577 views


742nd dinner put together by Chris who is our Chief Cook and unfortunatly for him, his work schedule did not allow him to enjoy this great meal he planned for us. There were 26 in attendance and plenty of wine for the very warm evening outside. David Burke's Primehouse in the James Hotel is arguably one of the best steak houses in Chicago that delights with surprises, outside of the traditional steakhouse fare.

    This wine has power. Great deep color in the glass. Great nose and very full on the palate. Great compliment to the food course. I liked this a lot.
