ZED451 is an unconventional steakhouse located in the heart of River North, on the corner of Clark Street and Superior Street.  In our warm, contemporary, 18,000-square foot space, we sought to set a new standard in modern upscale dining through our unique approach to the dining experience.  There are no menus; you choose from the wide selection of steaks, poultry, wild game, and fish that our tableside chefs bring directly to your table.  Help yourself to our seasonal Harvest Tables and take as much – or as little – as you wish.  At ZED451 you control the pacing and portions so you can stay as long as you want and eat what you desire.
