You know about steaks. You also know something about sizzle.

But there is an uncharted area of space-time where steak and sizzle collide, producing something truly rare and majestic.

Yes, the chicken-fried prime rib barrier has been broken.

Brace yourself for III Forks, a Shangri-la of a steakhouse, opening Wednesday in Lakeshore East.

We know. Steaks, the universe, Lakeshore East. We’ve thrown a lot of heavy stuff at you for a Monday, so let’s break it down, starting with Lakeshore East. That’s the secluded development just off Randolph, north of Millennium Park. A quick glance at Google Maps will serve you well.

You’ll stroll in—and yes, we mean stroll, because there’s a lot to see: a magnificent wall of windows looking out into the park, mosaic columns, a glass wine room and waiters in tuxedo jackets brandishing 18-ounce, bone-in rib eyes.

When you’re here for business, take one of the private rooms to wow investors with your ability to juggle a PowerPoint presentation, that aforementioned country-fried prime rib, maybe a deep-fried rock lobster tail and a scotch or two.

But should you find yourself in need of a little fresh air, head for the rooftop deck—filled with heated cabanas, fire pits, a full bar, skyline views and a special menu with something called Duck & Waffles.

Which goes really well with fresh air.
