About Our Chicago Steakhouse


Located in River North, on bustling Wabash Avenue, Steak 48 brings a contemporary atmosphere to Chicago’s fine dining scene. Visitors will be welcomed in the entryway with a view of our 3,000-bottle wine vault and chic decor. Our restaurant interior was carefully designed by Testani Design Troupe, bringing modern, elegant designs to life.

A Chicago Steakhouse with Vibrant City Ambiance

All of our furniture from dining room tables to barstools have been carefully selected to add to the vibrant ambiance of each dining area. With over 12,000 square feet available, our two-level dining space has been intricately planned to provide an aesthetic for any occasion. Quiet nooks offer intimate and romantic settings and larger dining areas give large groups and parties a chance to engage in an energetic experience. It’s perfect for a night out or a special occasion. We also have several private dining rooms and event venue spaces for private parties.

Lively Chicago Bar

The lower floor of our Chicago steakhouse features a lively bar where guests can enjoy something from our extensive wine, whiskey, bourbon, or signature cocktail list. The first floor also offers a collection of semi-private suites with a view of our distinctive floor-to-ceiling glassed-in open kitchen. Diners with a view of the kitchen get a rare opportunity not available in most steakhouse restaurants. Our Executive Chef’s culinary team can be seen preparing selections from our expansive raw bar and prime-grade steak menu, turning a night out into an unforgettable performance.

Comfortable Outdoor Patio

Our second floor is home to an outdoor patio full of lush greenery and multiple dining areas with a birds-eye view of Wabash Avenue in the River North area. The upper level offers dining on the patio near one of two fireplaces with a view of the hustle and bustle of the city below, or in one of many seating areas in a cozy and intimate dining space.

Curated Music Selection

Background music will enhance your experience without becoming a distraction as an engaging classically inspired soundtrack has been personally selected by Michael Mastro.

After years of learning from our guests we chose to build Steak 48 on the core foundation of kindness, consideration and true hospitality. Our guests can go anywhere they want for dinner and when they choose us that is a compliment that we do not take for granted.

We focus strongly on the totality of the experience, taking care of our guests from start to finish to make sure everyone enjoys the best quality food with top-notch service that is always genuine and sincere.


“We are incredibly grateful and truly humbled to bring our Steak 48 concept to Chicago, the steakhouse capital of the world. Our Steak 48 locations have done very well in Arizona and Texas and we’re excited to introduce it to discerning Chicagoans who certainly know their steak.”
– Jeffrey Mastro

When brothers Jeffrey and Michael Mastro, their father Dennis and partner Scott Trolio established Steak 48 in 2014, they sought to create a unique steakhouse that went beyond the traditional stereotype. The group currently owns several fine-dining steakhouses including, Dominick’s Steakhouse and Steak 44 in Phoenix, AZ, and Steak 48 in Houston, TX, and Philadelphia, PA.

The name Steak 48 is chosen in homage to the Mastro family’s home state of Arizona in recognition of it being the 48th state to join the Union.

The group has already established a track record of developing successful steakhouse franchises with the operation of Mastro Steakhouses and Ocean Club restaurants in Arizona and California before selling the brand in 2007.

With their new offerings in the culinary landscape, the Mastros seek to bring a new concept that is not only refreshing and interesting, but an approachable adaptation of what an American steakhouse should be.
