Chicago claims some of the top steak houses in the country, but honestly, Wisconsin beats us in prime rib, something its supper clubs traditionally serve every Saturday night. There's one place that measures up and outdoes our neighbors to the north - Lawry's The Prime Rib, open in 1974 and housed in the 1890's McCormick Mansion. Family-owned for four generations, Lawry's was the first single entrée restaurant in the country when it opened in Beverly Hills in 1939. Salad served before the main course started at Lawry's and you should have the Original Spinning Bowl Salad spun tableside on a bed of ice, then served on a chilled plate with a chilled salad fork. Ditto the Roasted Prime Ribs of Beef slow roasted on a bed of rock salt. and hand-carved and served tableside from carts by Master Carvers who train for six months before entering the Royal Order of Carvers.
- Magnificent Mile's Best Restaurants: "Try a Meat & Potato Martini, Chopin potato vodka and two colossal olives stuffed with horseradish and prime rib, the first cocktail to be served tableside at the prime rib house."
- Best for Magnificent Mile's Best Restaurants Because: Historic surroundings and meal as spectacle (spinning salad bowl and hand-carved prime rib) is entertaining and the food doesn't disappoint.
