Gene & Georgetti's, serving steaks and Italian specialties in the shadow of Chicago's El tracks since 1941, is still lovingly owned and operated by the original family. Imagine nearly eight decades of tradition and you'll appreciate the clubby atmosphere steeped in Chicago history. Clams and mussels in red or white sauce with toasted bread for dunking set you afloat. The T-Bone Steak is a G & G classic, but plenty of other beefy options are served nicely crusted with minimal seasoning allowing the meat's flavor to star. You can't go wrong with lamb chops, original garbage salad, spicy Chicken alla Joe or any Italian-American dish like Chicken Vesuvio or Eggplant Parmigiana. Portions are unsurprisingly generous and there's enough variety to please pasta, seafood and chicken fans. In addition to the expected steakhouse veg and sides, G & G offers mounds of Vesuvio potatoes as well as Italian sausage and meatballs.
- Steakhouses: "Unlike many other steakhouses, the River North eatery is open for lunch and there's a coffee window (open at 9am) for Italian coffee, breakfast pastries and sandwiches."
- Best for Steakhouses Because: Waitstaff hearken back to the days when servicing guests was a profession as opposed to a necessary gig between semesters or auditions.
