Since its inception in 2006, David Burke’s Primehouse, located at 616 N. Rush St. at The James Hotel, has continued to redefine the modern American steakhouse by pushing the envelope of culinary creativity.  The menu is marked by notable and whimsical dishes that are signature to the innovative style of Chef David Burke, under the guidance of Executive Chef Dino Tsaknis.  The first chef to own his bull, Burke’s commitment to quality is evident in the USDA prime grade, hand-selected beef served in Primehouse.  The restaurant dry-ages its meat in a Himalayan salt-tiled aging room on premise.  Tours of this unique facility can be arranged upon reservation.  Primehouse is one of Chicago’s most award-winning steakhouses including being named #1 steakhouse in Chicago by Chicago magazine (October 2013).  For reservations or more information, call 312-660-6000, or visit
