David Burke’s Primehouse redefines the modern American steakhouse by pushing the envelope of culinary creativity. The menu is marked by notable and whimsical dishes that are signature to the eclectic and innovative style of Chef David Burke, such as Pretzel Crusted Crab Cake and Wagyu Beef Sashimi on Himalayan rock salt.
The first chef to own his own bull, Chef Burke's commitment to quality is evident in the USDA prime grade, hand-selected beef served in David Burke's Primehouse. The meat is dry-aged in a Himalayan salt-tiled aging room on premise. The result is perfectly marble-ized, tender beef with a rich depth of flavor.
David Burke’s Primehouse features a rotating menu that focuses on seasonal, local and organic ingredients and inventive dishes that reflect evolving culinary trends. Highlighting the entrée menu are the award-winning 55-Day Aged Rib Eye, Bone-In 20 oz. “South Side” Filet Mignon and Butter Poached Lobster.

Everything tastes as good as it looks.
When we work, we always remember that, first and foremost, this is food. It should taste amazing. So when we create our cake masterpieces, however complex, we use as many edible components as possible. If that means using rice crispy beams to hold up an eight-foot-tall cake, so be it.
A passion for great baking...
With his first taste of authentic artisan bread, Rich Labriola found his passion. Bread was his calling and he would do it better than anyone else. Working with French, Italian and German masters, Rich incorporated unique starters, aged his own flour and installed distinctive ovens to bring traditional European breads to a hungry market. Today the Labriola Bakery is still growing as it serves many of the finest restaurants and groceries in the Chicago area.
Turning a love of great bread into a restaurant...
As a child, Rich absorbed an appreciation of pizza and of hospitality in his father’s small pizza shop, and eventually came back to pizza with his passion for authentic, soul-nourishing bread. Rich created the Oak Brook–based Labriola Bakery Café and Neapolitan Pizzeria to share the artisan bread experience with diners. His innovative model paired no-waiter efficiency with top-quality freshly prepared food—and hospitality that feels like home. Labriola brings the textures and tastes of tradition to an innovative dining experience that is invitingly familiar while always offering new options to explore.
Rich’s love for hospitality...
Blessed with a sense for the wishes, tastes and cravings of his guests, Rich has networked with innumerable chefs and restaurateurs to develop his own vision of what a restaurant can be and do for the diner. And now he brings it all to Michigan Avenue.

For more than 40 years, Kamehachi has been perfecting the art of making sushi. And today, the values and traditions established at ‘Chicago's First Sushi Restaurant' are as strong as ever. Made with the highest quality ingredients and meticulously crafted, Kamehachi has earned its reputation as the premier Japanese restaurant in the Chicago-land area.
Over the years, Kamehachi has grown and expanded its delectable menu as well as its city and suburban locations. Grilled seafood, steaks, salads and a variety of new maki and sashimi offerings are sure to please sushi aficionados as well as those who prefer more traditional cooked fare.
Kamehachi came to the States from Japan through distant relatives who once owned restaurants in New York City. In 1967, Mrs. Marion Konishi opened Kamehachi in its famous Old Town spot across from Second City, where many locals and celebrities had their first sushi experiences. Kamehachi's current owners, Sharon Perazzoli and Giulia Sindler (Marion's daughter and granddaughter), have since grown the family-owned business with locations in Northbrook, Streeterville, the Loop (Chicago) and River North (Chicago).
We invite you to experience the unique flavors, textures and artistry of the Japanese cuisine and look forward to providing a great Japanese dining experience for many more generations to come.
