A cut above the rest: Chicago top steakhouses

Steakhouses claim a favored spot in Chicago’s restaurant scene, perhaps because of the city’s connection with the now-shuttered Chicago stock yards. At one point during the last century, Chicago packaged more meat than any other place in the world. But maybe it’s because the best steakhouses are a bit like the city itself, down-to-earth and friendly but sophisticated, offering up generous portions of familiar food while still highlighting something that is surprising or whimsical.


Gene & Georgetti

Gene & Georgetti’s, serving steaks and Italian specialties in the shadow of Chicago’s El tracks since 1941, is a classic restaurant still in the same family that opened it. The T-Bone Steak is a favorite, but multiple strip, rib eye and loin options are served up thick and crusted in a broiler without any seasonings. The portions are large and there’s enough variety to please large groups with chicken, seafood and pasta options sharing menu space with the beef. You can get spinach, sautéed or creamed, and a shrimp cocktail for an appetizer. The dessert menu has a classic feel, too, with chocolate fudge cake, cannoli and spumoni among the offerings.
