Gene & Georgetti Review

This old-school steak house, in business since 1941, is a Chicago institution. It thrives on the buddy network of high-powered regulars and celebrities who pop into the historic River North joint to carve up massive steaks, quality chops, and the famed "garbage salad"—a kitchen-sink creation of greens with vegetables and meats. The menu also includes Italian-American classics such as eggplant parmigiana and veal Vesuvio, along with simple seafood dishes like lobster tail, salmon, and whitefish. Service can be brusque if you're not connected, and prices can be steep, but the vibe is Chicago to the core.

    great old Chicago haunt

    the smell of animal fat and garlic surrounds thr whole block. this is an "in place: which means you get great service if you are a known customer or they like you. it is definitely worth a visit to check out the cottage fries and sit at the bar to chat. it is unique and not a chain restaurant. good choice for people who like traditional food and entertainment.
