Chicago’s newest steakhouse, STK Chicago (9 W. Kinzie), held it’s (private) Grand Opening event on October 7, inviting local neighbors, celebrities, politicos and VIPs to the tenth opening for this popular eatery. Described as a "unique concept that artfully blends the modern steakhouse and chic lounge into one, offering a dynamic, fine dining experience with the superior quality of a traditional steakhouse", the event brought out the who's who of Chicago to sample this latest edition to our dining scene.
A VIP party in the new space featured burlesque dancers who welcomed guests with Prosecco and STK Chicago signature cocktails--The Cucumber Stiletto and Not Your Daddy’s Manhattan. Guests also enjoyed passed hors d’oeuvres that included tuna tartare and chili rubbed lamp chops while local DJ Lani Love kept the crowd fueled for fun.
Attendees included Representative Jack Franks; Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White; Chicago businessman and former State Senator, William Marovitz; Director of Intergovernmental Affairs at Illinois Secretary of State, Jill Zwick; radio and TV personality Mancow Muller and Chicago City Clerk, Susana Mendoza; The ONE Group’s co-founder and senior VP, Celeste Fierro; Shameless cast members Shanola Hampton and Jeremy Allen White; Chicago PD cast members Brian Geraghty, Marina Squerciati and LaRoyce Hawkins and America’s Next Top Model winner, Jaslene Gonzalez.
Singer and Empire cast member, Becky G, arrived with her entourage later in the evening, dining on the STK Chicago VIP platter, dancing and snapchatting her fans.
