Until recently there was just one steak house within walking distance that I would recommend to our guests, that being the consistently good, well priced Select Cut at 2808 N. Halsted. But now I am happy to add another name to the list: Revolucion Mexican Steak house at 3443 N. Broadway.
I recently hosted a birthday dinner there for twelve. The manager set up seating for us in a small cozy upstairs room and graciously allowed me time to decorate before the birthday girl arrived. We started off with cocktails. The one I’ll go back for is the cucumber- jalapeño margarita, unique refreshing and delicious. Our appetizers included two of the many choices for guacamole, traditional and roasted, both were good. The fish ceviche was excellent. With a large group tastes vary of course, and everything from steaks to seafood, burgers to salads were ordered by our table. The big hits of the party included the filet with a Mexican spice rub and a jalapeño red wine reduction, the crab stuffed tilapia, the fried plantains and the esquites, a Mexican version of creamed corn. But the evening would not have been complete without dessert for the birthday girl. The manager brought a platter featuring all of their desserts. Arranged beautifully with fresh strawberries and drizzled with chocolate sauce were flan, chocolate cake and a scrumptious Tres Leches cake.
The service at Revolucion was very good. It’s about an eight block walk from the Inn, just under a mile. Entrees range from $15 to over $50 for a few specialties, but the average price is under $30. Reservations are recommended, especially for on weekends. In good weather outdoor cafe seating is available. So if you are looking for a great steak or an upscale Mexican experience, Revolucion Mexican Steakhouse fits the bill. As always we are happy to assist you in securing reservations.
