Swift & Sons

Chicago has some legendary steakhouses, Morton's and Gibsons chief among them. Swift & Sons makes a strong argument for inclusion on the list. Designed by AvroKO, who used the 10,000 square foot space's past as a cold storage locker in the old meatpacking district as inspiration, it has a past-meets-future, Tomorrowland-like aesthetic that's nearly as notable as the food. Speaking of which, the steaks are all sourced from small, bovine-friendly farms, while the sides are reinterpreted takes on the classics, and the desserts — should you have room — are decidedly modernist. There are also multiple bar areas, serving up an impressive cocktail menu and the requisite massive wine list boasting over 600 bottles and 30 wines by the glass. Become a regular, and you'll get to enjoy one more detail: a brass nameplate set at your table, just to make your meals that much more memorable.
