It's not like Chicago is lacking when it comes to upscale cuisine, but nothing quite like About Last Knife existed before the steakhouse opened a few weeks ago. The eatery displays a distinctly quirky personality, as evidenced by menu headings like "Definitely Healthy... Totally" and the face of the building's architect splashed across an entire wall.
About Last Knife wants to make the upscale steakhouse more fun and approachable, and touches like this seem to do the trick. That being said, the chef will still impress your taste buds with the delicious and innovative American fare. Start with charred steak tartare with braised mustard seeds, pickles, lemon aioli, and potato chips for some proof. Then dig into the main event: a juicy steak. You can savor Beef Wellington by the slice, order your own 10-ounce hanger steak with house-made sauce, or opt for a bone-in ribeye with house bearnaise instead.
