The city’s oldest steakhouse marks a milestone 70th birthday with
entertainment, cuisine, cocktails, and prices straight out of the
Chicago institution Gene & Georgetti offers three nights of
throwback dinners on Thursday, July 14- Saturday, July 16.
These 1940s-themed celebrations will feature special four-course
prix-ﬁxe menus, cocktails, entertainment, décor, glamour and the
same prices Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope and Lucille Ball ponied up
in the 1940s. The menu (which includes two cocktails) costs
$15.25 per person (tax and gratuity not included).
Visit Thursday and experience a retro cocktail party, complete with vintage movie posters, classic libations and
décor. Firday’s celebration hearkens back to Hollywood’s golden years with celeb impersonators and 1940s
ﬁlms on the screens. Finally, on Saturday, swing to the sounds of the “Big Band Era” with legendary Sway
Chicago, as they join Gene & Georgetti to wrap up the festivities.
The prix-ﬁxe menu is available each day from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m, and entertainment begins nightly at 6 p.m.
Reservations are required. Contact reservations (Marissa Vangarderen) between the hours of 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
