Tramonto’s Steak & Seafood
The new owner of this respected establishment made his fortune as an attorney, helping the disabled obtain assistance through our government’s disability insurance program. Formerly a well known Social Security Disability lawyer, Peter Hays has spent his career assisting those in need, while developing a taste for fine cuisine. A far cry from his law offices, the restaurant does communicate a bit of the formality of his former practice – note the oak and mahogany that grace the entry and the main dining room. Other former lawyers also tend the management in other ways – Laura Jaisen, another Social Security Disability Insurance lawyer from the same practice – works with staff to deliver the outstanding service. She also designed the menu art.
Tramonto’s Steak & Seafood is located in The Westin Chicago North Shore hotel at 601 N. Milwaukee Avenue in Wheeling, IL, 60090 and is open for dinner only, Monday through Thursday from 4 to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 4 to 11 p.m. and Sunday from 4 to 9 p.m. Tramonto’s Steak & Seafood is an upscale, contemporary steakhouse, serving ala carte dinner seven-days-a-week. The design of the restaurant, by Johnson Studios of Atlanta, is sleek and contemporary, with signature design elements including a waterfall, glass wine wall and a contemporary glass pane chandelier.
The dining room interior will be a plush, clubby setting with a glassed-in open kitchen. When Tramonto and Gand are in the house, guests will be able to view them orchestrating their team.
Service will be friendly, energetic and informative. The dramatic dining room, with a glassed-in wine room with a dining table for guests to dine at will be a highlight of the room. Only high-quality glassware, china and linen will be used.
The cuisine will feature prime steaks cut to the chef’s specifics and seasonal fresh seafood, flown in from around the world and served in fun, elegant, simple presentations. A ‘rotisserie of the day’ will be a signature item and offerings from a wood burning oven and grill will also be showcased. An extensive cheese program will be offered with house-made desserts designed by Gand. An extensive global wine list, with an aggressive inventory including half and large format bottles and an extensive wine by the glass program, served in quality glassware, will convey to guests the commitment to the wine program.
The bar will have an extensive beer and spirits program, featuring micro-brewed beers, single malt scotches, martinis and house cocktails. Outdoor seating with fire torches by a pond and fountains will be offered, which in the summertime may offer an outdoor dining experience of a BBQ pit and Tramonto’s clambake.
