    It was my first time, and Carl our waiter made it very memorable. He was knowledgeable about all the different steaks and brought them out for us to see. The martini he suggested was excellent. All of his suggestions were! I got the ribeye and it melted in my mouth. Best steak I’ve ever had.

    Our dinner at Tzuco was a revelation - many of the flavors and ingredients were new to us (enthusiastic eaters who’ve traveled extensively in Mexico). Loved the pink peppercorn-infused vermouth in the Negroni, the tart jocoque beneath the tower of crispy papas zamoranas, and that amazing costilla de res! Oh, and the maíz dessert was fun and playful as well as delicious.

    Le Colonial has the benefit of a 5 Star "starting point" simply because it is my wife's favorite restaurant in Chicago. To qualify this, my wife has excellent taste, so, you could argue that my 5 Star proclivity is warranted..... Beyond that though, the elegant environment with soft lighting, formal (but not stuffy) decor, and an overall soothing & seductive ambiance. The service is attentive & we have enjoyed exploring the menu which never fails to delight. Highly recommend!

    Absolutely wonderful! We particularly enjoyed the seafood tower and steak and eggs, both topped with generous helpings of caviar. Service and wine list were also impeccable. We’ll be back!

Discover Gold Coast

Located north of the Chicago River along the shores of Lake Michigan, the neighborhoods of Streeterville and the Gold Coast developed as affluent areas in the wake of the Chicago Fire in the late 19th century. Today, these neighborhoods boast family entertainment centers, fine museums and a variety of restaurants for everyone to enjoy. Families can delight in the fun and festivities along the Navy Pier with burgers, fish and fresh baked goods for nourishment. Going inland in Streeterville, the dining gets a bit more upscale with Chicago deep dish pizzerias and Polish sausage on every corner. Heading north to the Gold Coast will get you fine dining and international food territory. Tender steaks, tapas bars and French cuisine are among the hidden gems.
