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 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.
