Restaurants are frequently coming and going in downtown Chicago, but few openings have the kind of anticipation and excitement like Rural Society—a new Argentine steakhouse that will be located inside the brand new Loews Hotel at 455 N. Park Drive in Streeterville.
Although details about Rural Society have been fairly hush-hush to this point, celebrity chef Jose Garces, perhaps most known for his appearances of Iron Chef, also opened a location out in Washington D.C. this past summer, where it’s being very well received by critics and local residents alike.
Meats, seafood, veggies, and pizzas are expected to be cooked on a large 10-foot grill over imported Argentine wood, while stacks of the same wood will be used as the main decor element around the interior space. Italian digestifs and whiskeys will be the focus of the cocktail menu, but as for anymore menu specifics, it appears we’ll have to wait until the opening date gets closer, which going off of various reports around town, should be later this winter.
