I swear, I searched first, but all the recommendations are 2-4 years old/
NYC Chowhound entertaining a huge Chicago client who eats only basic steak/potatoes type food. The filet mignon with artichoke/mushroom wine reduction sauce type place is unfortunately not an option.
We would prefer something that's not a chain. Financial area/SoMA or somewhere else centrally located would be best...
The old reviews here mentioned Alfreds and Izzys. Are these client type places? Its a down to earth client I know well, not someone new I have to impress, but the top level person is sooooo picky!
