Tavern on Rush has been a Gold Coast favorite since opening its doors in 1998. A sophisticated steakhouse feel permeates the two-level space, which features a bustling bar on the first level and an elegant dining room on the second floor. A vibrant scene unfolds on the 114-seat outdoor patio cafe each day and well into the night, offering one of Chicago’s most energetic people-watching perches. Executive Chef John Gatsos has crafted a classic steakhouse menu that goes beyond the norm with globally influenced dishes made with a healthy touch. A well-edited wine list is joined by several beers and an array of specialty martinis to satisfy even the most discerning drinker.
