For Restaurant Week, ask about the special Tequila Program in celebration of National Margarita Day. From February 17th-23rd, they are “featuring 3 special ways to drink 3 special tequilas.” Try some Avion Reposado Tequila.

The swanky Chicago outpost of the Dallas-based contemporary steakhouse group has expansive floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Lake Shore East Park. In April, you can have a fabulous Vino con Vista from the luxurious open-air rooftop on the second floor. For the perfect rooftop Vino con Vista, order a bottle of 2010 Belle Glos Meiomi Pinot Noir from Santa Barbara County as you gaze at the twinkling lights in LakeShore East.

III Forks has an elegant glass-enclosed wine room with 300-400 bottles. You can peruse the wine list on their iPad. I loved doing that!

There is a cozy two-sided fireplace and plenty of space available for Private Parties.  I loved the mosaic columns that decorated the dining room.

The regular menu consists primarily of USDA prime beef, with an in-house butcher cutting the filets and strip steaks to order. There’s an interesting selection of seafood, such as sea bass, salmon and coldwater lobster.
