(1user review)

Steadfast brings a seasonal, chef-driven restaurant concept from The Fifty/50 Restaurant Group to the Loop. Through collaboration between Chef Christopher Davies & Pastry Chef Christopher Teixeira, the menu blends seasonality and creativity with balanced characteristics of the two chefs. New American cuisine with Mediterranean and Portuguese influences reflect the cultural diversity of both chefs. Steadfast’s focal point - the exhibition kitchen, invites guests from every seat in the house to personally connect with the culinary team and enjoy the show. Steadfast features an in-house bread, pastry and charcuterie program. A 20 person chefs table overlooking the kitchen and charcuterie room, can be reserved in its entirety or shared for a communal experience.

We arrived at 6:20 PM. We found a seat at the bar right away. We ordered a Burnham and Root and the Passion Dream from The Burnham and Root was in a tall cocktail glass with a square shaped ice cube. It was garnished with a soaked dark cherry, held in the glass by a plastic skewer. The cherry was a great addition to the drink. It was a good amount of sweet to cut a bit of the alcohol flavor. I really enjoyed this drink and would order it again.

The Passion Dream was served very cold in a wide cup champagne type glass. It was a lovely shade of pink with a thick white froth on top. Both drinks were the right temperature. They were very smooth, refreshing and delicious. The Passion Dream was slightly sweet for my taste, so I would only order one of them, but I enjoyed the one that I had.

We ordered the Charcuterie and asked if he had any recommendations for another appetizer. The bartender said his favorites were the Crab Cakes, Lobster Rolls, and Beef Tartare. We ordered the Lobster Rolls. *Note, the Charcuterie does not come with any type of bread or cracker. They have bread plates on the menu that you order separately.  The Charcuterie was served with three types of meats, three cheeses and a few dollops of an unidentified sauce. It was presented beautifully on a black slate tile.

The Lobster Rolls consisted of four slices of Brioche topped with the Lobster Salad, topped with Roe and garnished with a wispy green herb of some sort. It was served on a long, rectangular wood board. The portion size portion size for both appetizers was adequate. They tasted great. The server had told us what the cheeses were, but I would have appreciated an identification component on the slate because I could not remember what the server told me, but I enjoyed them and would like to remember for the future. Bread would have been nice to accompany the plate had I noticed that it was not included. The overall presentation of both plates was very attractive. The Lobster Rolls were very good and I would order them again.
