RPM Steak located in Chicago's River North neighborhood is the creation of restaurateurs Richard, R.J., Jerrod and Molly Melman, celebrity couple Giuliana and Bill Rancic, and acclaimed chef/ partner Doug Psaltis. The sister restaurant to RPM Italian, RPM Steak marks the second collaboration between the partners. This new venture brings a contemporary, chef-driven approach to a traditional steakhouse menu as well as ageless cosmopolitan glamour to the overall dining experience.
The menu, created by chef/partner Doug Psaltis, features more than a dozen different cuts of steak all sourced from handpicked purveyors from across the globe. Whether it’s 20-ounce grass-fed ribeye from Slagel Farm in Downstate Illinois, 60-day aged cote de boeuf and 28-day-aged New York Strip from great dry age houses from around the country, or the five-ounce Japanese Kobe A5 strip steak, Psaltis has curated a lineup of best-in-class producers for each cut. Among RPM Steak’s signature items: an eight-ounce prime ribeye cap and The Duke, a center-cut prime ribeye filet that are butchered and hand-cut in house. The chef rounds out the menu with bison and lamb, coal-roasted chicken, and an outstanding seafood selection that features Colossal Tiger Prawns, Spicy Miso-Roasted Maine Lobster, and a citrus-tinged Halibut T-bone. Another distinctive aspect of the menu: a section dedicated exclusively to a rotating list of mushrooms, including hand-foraged chanterelle mushrooms and roasted hen of the woods. Desserts include a daily selection of elegant soufflés in addition to chef’s interpretations of classic desserts like Baked Alaska and the 14-Carat Chocolate Cake, a chocolate-layer cake topped in edible gold leaf.
The wine menu features a global selection of 350 wines, all hand-chosen by Wine Director Richard Hanauer, who previously created wine lists for two-Michelin Star restaurant, L2O. The list highlights the best steak-friendly wines from regions across the globe, with a special emphasis on American producers. By-the-glass offerings will include vintages currently at their peak, allowing diners the rare opportunity to sample limited-run productions without the expense of a full bottle.
