    6. Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab

    Restaurant: Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab

    Address: 60 E Grand Ave, River North

    Signature: Perfect for winter, it’s like a brief vacation to Miami, where you’ll find the original Joe’s. Inside you’ll find warm woods, top-shelf service and even better eats.

    Also known for: The stone crab, of course. But since that’s a very work intensive meal and you may be deep in deal talk, consider steak or salmon, followed by some refreshing Key lime pie.
