David Burke's Primehouse

James Hotel Chicago
Chicago, IL, 60611, United States
TEL: (312) 660-6000

Located inside the James Hotel, owner and renowned chef David Burke’s Primehouse is known for its awarding-winning cuts of meat, such as the 55-day aged rib eye. Red leather tables and brown leather chairs fill the dining room, where patrons head for dishes from the ever-rotating menu. Using local and organic ingredients, executive chef Rick Gresh prepares creative favorites like the pretzel crusted crab cake and Kobe beef sashimi on Himalayan rock salt. To create the perfectly marble-ized and most tender steaks, the restaurant dry-ages its meats inside an on-site Himalayan salt-tiled aging room.

Insider Tip:

If you are very interested in the process of dry aging, you can request a tour of the aging room with thousand-year-old Himalayan rock salt.
