What happened to the breadsticks?

We can accommodate most allergies (we have vegan, gluten free, and dairy free options), please click here to view our menu or call us with any questions.

What is your dress code?
G&G is a classic Chicago steakhouse, smart or business casual, elevated chic encouraged! If you need more detailed guidance please see below:
