Chicago has plenty of steakhouses, so it takes a lot for a place to distinguish itself. And though Nisos Prime in the West Loop might be better than its short stint as a Greek restaurant, it’s still not particularly impressive. Sure, the large, dimly lit space with ubiquitous basket lights, club music, and roaming carts with prosciutto slicers can be fun. But when oversalted octopus shows up on mushy fava bean puree, or your undercooked ravioli is full of crab that tastes like old seawater, the fun doesn’t last. The steaks are actually fine and come with a nice beef tallow butter, but since nearby places like El Che, Swift and Sons, and Fioretta are a more complete restaurant experience, Nisos Prime is just another forgettable steakhouse.
