North Suburban fans who “feel very lucky” to have this “local” New American “favorite” “so close” swear it serves the “best steaks in” the area, “excellent fresh seafood” and an “ample list of fine wines”, all within a setting sporting “extra special and unique” decor no wonder so few mind that it's “a bit pricey:; P.S. “the dessert list is satisfyingly sweet.”
