To finish out my sampler platter of places to lunch in Chicago, welcome back to David Burke’s Primehouse., 616 Rush St., Chicago, IL.
You know when you have been to a restaurant, had a über fabulous meal, chomp at the bit to return and the food doesn’t live up to the memory? Well, upon my follow-up visit to David Burke’s Primehouse in downtown Chicago, I was anticipating excellence once again. Once again, that is exactly what I got!!!! No wonder they were on Food Paradise, Steak Paradise. I was, in Paradise.
I crush hard on this restaurant. Different staff this time, still exceptional. Different burger this time, still “Slap My Bootie and Call Me Susie” fantastic. It was Sunday, and their version of Brunch, so their menu was different than during the week. The Fatty Melt Sliders I adored a few months back weren’t on the menu. When making reservations, asking about that menu item and letting them know I was traveling, the Hostess spoke with the Manager and said they would make them special for me. Really?! I love you even more! PSA – Just because I mentioned this, don’t be a jerk and demand off the menu items. They had 3 days to prepare before my arrival. Good people.
Back to the meal. They have a nice offering for brunch, but adoring their dry-aged beef burgers, the special burger for the day was top choice at my table, the Chipotle Burger. Excuse me a moment while I wipe my mouth in remembrance of the first bite………………..okay. Freaking A-#1 incredibly delicious! An impeccable blend of flavors, not too spicy or overwhelming the taste of the beef. You just can’t go wrong with one of their burgers. Cooked to my perfect RARE perfection, thank you. Oh baby, it may be cold outside but dang! My innards are toasty and completely satisfied now. If you felt the need to light a cigarette after (outside of course), I wouldn’t blame you. 😉
5 out of 5 beef butter love smacks. MUAH!
