CHICAGO CUT STEAKHOUSE AND THE LOCAL CHICAGO CELEBRATE CHICAGO’S 177th ANNIVERSARY

This March, Chicago Cut Steakhouse and The Local Chicago will celebrate Chicago’s 177th anniversary with specials featuring the city’s most savored dishes since its incorporation in 1837. Chicago Cut’s signature Bone-In Rib Eye, slightly charred on the outside with a warm and red center, dry-aged and butchered on site, will be available at both restaurants for $54. Additionally, the restaurants have teamed up with Black Dog Gelato to create a Cracker Jack Gelato Sundae for $10 as a nod to Chicago’s favorite snack.

“The success of our steakhouse is, in large part, due to Chicago’s long-standing commitment to quality food,” said owner David Flom. “Our service is a reflection of the city’s rich history and we look forward to making this celebratory day special for Chicagoans.” Since opening in the fall of 2010, Chicago Cut Steakhouse has become a staple in the Chicago restaurant scene and a favorite for locals and visitors. The restaurant has played host to a number of well-known athletes, celebrities, and politicians from Chicago and around the country.

The special dishes will be available on the city’s anniversary, Tuesday, March 4 at both locations. In addition, they will distribute the iconic Chicago flag pins worn by all of their servers.

About Chicago Cut Steakhouse

Restaurant industry veterans David Flom and Matt Moore opened the doors to Chicago Cut Steakhouse in September 2010.  Situated along the historical Chicago River and serving only the finest cuisine, Chicago Cut Steakhouse truly redefines the traditional steakhouse experience.  It is the only steakhouse in the city to exclusively serve USDA-certified prime steaks, which are butchered and dry aged on the premises. Serving breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner and offering private dining options, the restaurant features a dramatic dining room, vibrant bar area and sprawling outdoor patio. Additionally, the owners have introduced an iPad wine list, which offers guests a wine selecting experience unrivaled by their peers. With 40 iPads providing video, images and detailed information about each wine and their origins, Chicago Cut Steakhouse ensures a memorable and unique dining experience at every level. In April 2012, Chicago Cut Steakhouse was featured as one of America’s Top Ten Steakhouses in USA TODAY. Most recently, Yahoo named the restaurant one of the Top Five Steakhouses in America.

 

About The Local

After opening Chicago Cut Steakhouse in September 2010, restaurant industry veterans David Flom and Matt Moore set their eyes on Chicago’s Gold Coast and opened the doors to The Local. Intended to be an everyday eatery for the Gold Coast Crowd, the restaurant is a comfortable tavern-esque restaurant with an American theme and hearty homestyle favorites like meatloaf made with USDA Prime beef, rotisserie chicken pot pie, salmon Reuben sandwiches and other original twists on classics. The Local Chicago is open from breakfast through late-night dinner.

CHICAGO CUT STEAKHOUSE FIRST IN NATION TO POUR PRISONER WINE COMPANY’S NEW EXCLUSIVE WHITE BY THE GLASS

This October, Chicago Cut Steakhouse, known for having an extensive iPad wine list, will be the only restaurant in the country to pour Prisoner Wine Company’s highly sought after Blindfold White by the glass. The wine has become more rare as its retail sales have ceased in an effort to keep it exclusive.

Recently honored in USA Today Travel as one of the Top 10 Steakhouses in Chicago and by Yahoo as one of the Top 5 Steakhouses in the country, Chicago Cut Steakhouse is a natural selection for Prisoner Wine Company Owner Agustin Huneeus.

“We are big supporters of this winery and feel honored to be pouring it exclusively at Chicago Cut Steakhouse,” says proprietor David Flom. Blindfold is the answer to Prisoner Wine Owner Agustin Huneeus’ quest to find less one-dimensional white wines. Huneeus says, “The result is an interesting, fun white wine, which is not as big and dense as the Chardonnay, yet fuller and more complex than Sauvignon Blanc. It is a carefully executed composition of various varietals from excellent sources.”

Blindfold is available for $20 by the glass and $100 for a bottle, and is known for enhancing food accompaniment while serving as an aperitif. Chicago Cut Steakhouse has also added new wines by the glass to their extensive iPad wine list. These new wines include Paul Hobbs Crossbarn Chardonnay, $16, Ferrari Carano Fume Blanc, $10, Argyle Sparkling Wine, $15, Tattinger Champagne, $25, Achaval Ferrer “Quimera” Malbec, $15, Guigal “Crozes-Hermitage” Rhone Blend, $17, and Domaine Serene Pinot Noir, $24. Full beverage menu available upon request.

In addition, Chicago Cut Steakhouse has made updates to their iPad wine menu program including the ability to create an account in seconds. By simply imputing an email address, account holders can mark their favorite wines, give personal rankings and add notes, comments or any other pertinent information. When the session ends, the iPad is logged out and when guests return to the restaurant, they can simply sign in using their email address.

CHICAGO CUT STEAKHOUSE NEW WINES BY THE GLASS

CHICAGO CUT STEAKHOUSE NEW WINES BY THE GLASS

 

This winter, Chicago Cut Steakhouse presents a variety of impressive new wines by the glass, ranging in price from $8 – $50. Samples of featured wines below; the complete menu is available upon request.

 

Kistler “Russian River” Pinot Noir 2010 ($35) – Chicago Cut Steakhouse is the only restaurant in the city of Chicago to pour this exceptional selection by the glass. It comes from the earliest ripening portions of the vineyards and the fruit was selected for harvest based on its ability to display its vibrant nature and inherent balance.

Diamond Creek “Volcanic Hill” Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 ($50) – The winemaker describes the Napa Valley varietal as “full bodied, loaded with intense ripe berry fruit, cassis, violets and a smoky richness, finishing with good length and firm tannins.” Chicago Cut Steakhouse is proud to be the first restaurant in the country to offer this wine by the glass.

 

Primus 2009 ($13) – Winemaker Cristian Aliaga explains of the blend, “The 2009 growing season experienced a cool spring followed by a warm summer. Favorable temperatures provided for good ripening and resulted in intensely concentrated flavors, healthy grapes and excellent red, ripe fruit flavors with elegant yet powerful tannins.”

 

Wine Director David Flom takes great pride in updating and refreshing the wine list with the hopes that customers will always find something new and exciting. With 40 iPads providing video, images and detailed information about each wine and their origins, guests are offered a wine selecting experience unrivaled by their peers.
