My +1 (Papa Topps, AKA my Dad) and I stopped by for dinner on a Saturday night. I rode the Metra straight up from the city which drops you off literally across the street from the restaurant. It can’t get much easier! The restaurant is not huge and nearly every table was taken by the time we left. There’s also an outdoor patio (unfortunately it was a bit chilly the night we dined). The dining room is handsomely appointed in black and white, and aviation-themed photos adorn the walls.
After being seated in a comfy booth, General Manager and Sommelier, Robert Bansberg, offered a few wine selections. Ultimately we decided on a 2012 Syrah from Sonoma. The wine matched my request for something big and bold.

|Domestic Wagyu Flatiron Steak|
So what are my thoughts overall? I thought the quality of the food was excellent and the service and staff on par as well. The atmosphere is lively, albeit crowded, but hey, isn’t that a sign things are pretty darn tasty? My only gripe would be the pricing. Some appetizers and drinks are overpriced; however, the price of the steaks and sides are comparable to what you’d find at other upscale Chicago steakhouses. PM Prime is a great suburban alternative to River North steakhouses, and, in my opinion, well worth the trip!
Note: my meal at PM Prime was complimentary; however, the opinions expressed herein are my own.
