Food Network regular David Burke's steakhouse empire expanded last night, bravely heading into the Wild West of the Chicago suburbs. Located near the charming Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg, Burke's team has transformed the 22,000 square-foot former Entourage space at 1301 American Lane from an imposing glass-and-stone fortress into the woodsy design of David Burke's Grillhouse, complete with a pastoral brick fireplace, a TV lounge and bar, a glass-enclosed kitchen, multiple private dining rooms and images of Illinois farms.
Steak is obviously a highlight of the menu, which is listed on the restaurant's website, as a 30-day salt-aged beef entree is a prominent choice. Lighter dishes such as a salmon with spinach, wine pairings and a "lollipop" cheesecake on a stick are also available.
While featuring the David Burke name, this new concept is not part of the David Burke Group and their social media is somewhat anemic at this time. Eater reached out to Burke's team for more information, but you can already try his newest restaurant that's part of a new uptick in suburban dining.
EDIT: Reps say the restaurant's official name is Grillhouse by David Burke.
