|So many options!|
In celebration of Father's Day and my dad's birthday, the family and I ventured out to Chicago Cut Steakhouse in River North. If anyone knows my dad, they know him as a connoisseur of all things related to steak. He loves red meat and he loves a nice steak and glass of red wine. If that steak happens to be served with french fries and chocolate cake for dessert, consider it his heaven. After researching several steakhouses downtown, he selected Chicago Cut, due to a recent feature in Esquire.
We were seated in a spacious red velvet booth in the corner of the large dining room. Chicago Cut also features a gigantic outdoor patio overlooking the Chicago river, but on the night we visited, it was too hot to sit outside. Fortunately for us, the numerous windows allowed us a nice view from the indoor tables.

|Burratta and vine ripened tomato salad|
|Baby arugala salad with candied pecans, pickled fennel and valencia oranges|
|Jumbo lump crab and avocado cake with tarragon mustard vinaigrette and coleslaw|
All entrees are served a-la-carte, so we ordered two sides to accompany our meal. The french fries were a must and then we chose the green beans almondine, smothered in buttery goodness.
