Fodor's 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.
