Episode 4 - Legends of the Steakhouse

Today’s episode is about the steakhouse, (or chophouse) which is a restaurant that specializes in steaks and chops as their main plates. Modern-day, steakhouses can be found in abundance as they are a part of most major cities and metropolitan areas. And in some cases they can be found within ethnic inspirations such as Argentinian, Brazilian and Korean influences throughout the landscape. Personal side noteWe wanted to take a moment to share one of our most recent experiences that we had together in a steakhouse. It was located in the northwest Chicagoland suburbs, called, “Chicago Prime”.
