Lavishly appointed in an old money private club look, but perhaps with a bit of tongue in cheek (as the name hints) about how old and crusty it really is, Tortoise Club in the Marina City Complex offers an alternative to steak houses with the full retinue of (comparably priced) old school dishes like Dover sole with champagne truffle sauce, lobster Thermidor, and the signature dish shown above, Wild Pheasant Pie. Chef Gray McNally is a Spiaggia and Boka vet, so it's not like he's someone dyed in the wool of this kind of dining, and he looks to bring some farm-to-table freshness to the execution of classic dishes that date back to the era of Jeeves and Wooster. And that mix of contemporary technique and masculine comfort might be just the ticket for business dinner success in this neighborhood. Check out what's on the menus below.
