Zagat: 10 Must-Visit Classic Steakhouses Around the U.S
The prospect of choosing a steakhouse can often be daunting because everyone has an opinion — ask three friends, and you’ll get three widely differing restaurants. To help cut the clutter, we’ve compiled this tidy list of 10 must-try classic steakhouses around the country. Choose any of the below, and you won’t go wrong. (Oh, and if new-school steakhouses are more your thing, we’ve got a list for that, too.)
Gene & Georgetti, Chicago
Serving Chicago since 1941, this River North steakhouse has always been a place to see and be seen — and it remains so today. The beef is tender and flavorful; the Italian fare, just as hearty; and the cocktails, just as stiff. Bonus points for the ogle-worthy crowd, which includes politicians and Windy City elite.
