Tavern on Rush

Choosing a bar or restaurant on Rush Street in Chicago is like trying to choose a brand of chocolate in a candy store. However, Tavern on Rush helps you narrow this decision with their sophisticated menu of prime steaks, chops, seafood and poultry amid a casual, social environment.

Balancing a healthy mix between a sports bar and a fine dining restaurant, Tavern on Rush is ideal for an evening with friends or associates in the popular Gold Coast neighborhood.

The restaurant is arranged with multi-level seating, comfortable couches and leather-backed chairs, open windows and an outdoor cafe during summer months for alfresco dining.

But don’t expect your usual array of lowbrow bar food. Executive Chef John Gatsos serves a traditional array of American fare, using the finest ingredients including these specialties:

  • London Broil: marinated top sirloin, served with a cremini mushroom sauce and horseradish mashed potatoes.

  • Filet Mignon Oscar: petite filet, butterflied, topped with crab meat, asparagus and Hollandaise sauce.

  • Chateaubriand: marinated center-cut tenderloin served with grilled vegetables and Bearnaise sauce.

  • Lamb Chops: three double bone Australian lamb chops served with rosemary demi-glace, sauteed spinach and mashed potatoes.

    Though a popular evening attraction, Tavern on Rush is also a great place to bring guests for breakfast and lunch. Try mango pancakes, Irish smoked salmon or the Tavern Filet: tenderloin tips with Cremini mushrooms and Fontina cheese filled omelet with breakfast potatoes.

    For smaller parties, a private dining room is accessible, while the main dining room can accommodate larger events.

    Whether stopping in to watch the game and have a drink or an intimate evening of wining and dining, Tavern on Rush offers a refined atmosphere among the bar-hopping Rush Street scene.
