El Che Steakhouse & Bar is Executive Chef/Partner John Manion’s homage to Argentina’s beloved asados, those traditional backyard barbecues featuring platters of rustic flame-finished grilled beef. This Argentinian-influenced steakhouse, located just beyond the West Loop’s famed “restaurant row,” has built a reputation as Chicago’s go-to destination for beef, wine and live-fire cooking. A 12-foot custom-built grill serves as the inspiration for El Che’s menu, which includes South American-tinged meats, seasonal vegetables, seafood and novel barrio-inflected snacks. Its heat — both figuratively and literally — can be felt throughout the restaurant, especially at the Chef’s Counter and Hearth Table located directly in front of it.

El Che Steakhouse & Bar has earned a coveted three-star rating from the Chicago Tribune and was named in the “Top 50 Chicago Restaurants” by Chicago Tribune’s dining critic, Phil Vettel. As well as named one of Chicago Best Restaurants in 2019 by Conde Nest Travel.
