Steak News: Eat Like Mike at Table 23
Steak News: Eat Like Mike
Table 23 is the venerable king’s throne at Michael Jordan’s Michigan Avenue Steak House, an enormous corner booth overlooking the dining room vista. As if dining at the slam dunk steakhouse wasn’t enough, now you can reserve a seat at Jordan’s favorite booth yourself. When you do so, you’ll be rewarded with a special menu filled with Jordan’s favorite dishes. And the chance to be escorted to a nearby table should Jordan actually stop by and want his table back. Score!
The special Table 23 menu includes shareable starters like colossal crab cakes with Meyer lemon aioli; garlic bread with Wisconsin Roth Kase blue cheese fondue; and double-smoked bacon. For salads, guests select from Caesar salad, little gem lettuce wedge, and roasted beet salad, before moving on to an entree to share. This includes the MJ’s Delmonico with ginger-balsamic vinegar jus; roasted bone marrow with horseradish salsa verde, and caramelized onion; creamed spinach with Boursin cheese and Parmesan crust; mashed potato trio; and roasted oyster mushrooms with garlic and white soy vinaigrette.
Reserving Table 23 at this Downtown Steakhouse costs $300 for a table for two, or $600 for four. It also includes wine or beer pairings for each course. One cool caveat: if Jordan happens to stop by while you’re there, he’ll move you to a nearby table and pick up your entire bill. Which is basically tantamount to him throwing a penny into a fountain.
