Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse

Multiple locations

Web: hydeparkrestaurants.com

So you wanna spend a night on the town in style, and throw around some ducats? You won't find a better place that Hyde Park's Short North steakhouse. (All four locations are great, but the Cap outlet has the highest-profile address for conspicuous consumption.)

You can start at the opulent, curvy bar with a well-crafted martini or fine bottle of wine. Hell, treat yourself to some Louis XIII - this is a splurge! After enjoying a chilled shellfish platter, you'll probably want to rock the bone-in filet or Japanese wagyu beef. And don't forget to take full advantage of Hyde Park's attentive and professional service.

Don't forget the big tip, either, big spender.
