Fodor's Chicago 2014
Carmichael's Chicago Steak House
Carmichael's Chicago Steak House Review
The look here is old-time Chicago—oak and brass, black-and-white photographs, and waiters wearing black vests and ties—though the true vintage is late 1990s. We forgive them the ruse because of the well-priced (under $40) Angus steaks, which make this one of the more reasonable top-tier steak houses in town (and one of the most popular for basketball fans heading to the United Center for a game). Orange-sesame glazed salmon or pan-seared scallops are good non-beef options. Live music lures diners to the lush garden in summer.

We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.
We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.
Any add-ons in the area?
Thanks. Read more
