MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

In a city with no shortage of steakhouses, Side Door dares to be different. It’s the casual arm of Lawry’s in the historic McCormick Mansion, offering the same quality and service without the power lunch vibe. Comfy leather banquettes and wide wooden tables are well spaced throughout the bi-level restaurant, offering a respite for shoppers to relax with a cheese plate and craft beer flight. Share an order of prime rib poutine among friends-it's drenched in beef gravy and pepper jack cheese-or go whole hog with the prime rib sandwich, which is hand-carved to order and presented tableside with horseradish cream and au jus. For something lighter but just as pleasurable, try the kale Caesar, with white anchovies and a delicately creamy garlic dressing.
