Remington's, one of Eater Chicago's most anticipated openings of 2015, now has an official opening date of May 11. Right across from Millennium Park, inside the former Caffé Baci space, executive chef Todd Stein's menus boast a wide selection of American classics. It's also the first foray downtown for 4 Star Restaurant Group (Crosby Kitchen, The Smoke Daddy, Dunlay's).
Inside there's seating for 250, with room for 40 more outside on the sidewalk. They'll offer lunch and dinner everyday, plus weekend brunch. Steak lovers get the customary filet mignon and seemingly the restaurant's signature dish: An 18-ounce, dry-aged prime bone-in New York strip (called The Remington). Soups rotate daily and they'll serve Smoke Daddy's chili on Saturday.
Brunchers will get a selection of egg Benedicts, monkey bread and seafood selections (including sushi) from the raw bar. There's also a full cocktail list including "The Bean" (High West double rye, Fernet Branca, Luxardo maraschino, orange juice and Tawny port). The drink's named after the shiny Cloud Gate sculpture that diners can observe through the restaurant's windows.
