Steakhouses in Chicago

While the Midwest's local cuisine may be sparser on the seafood end, no one would deny that the people of the great plains know their cattle! Smack in the middle of some of the country's finest beef production, Chicago receives some of the highest quality steak around. Enter...the highest quality steakhouse. Chicago's magnificent steakhouses range from traditional to contemporary and formal to casual, but the common thread is that their food is outstanding. The simplicity of the menu at Benny's Chop House in River North showcases the perfection of their food. Try to get hold of the resident sommelier--he knows his work, and the beverage program here is outrageously well-done. The Chicago Cut House bustles with suits and fills quickly throughout the day with local business people fulfilling their USDA Prime fix. You'll enjoy the riverside view if you can pull your eyes away from the iPad wine list full of enormous bottles from around the world. David Burke's Primehouse at The James Hotel imagines creative takes on classics (note the steak sashimi). For the best of the standard steak and potato dining, hit the Chicago Chop House. The walls here are covered with photos of mayors and mafiosi alike (so you know the food has got to be excellent). The cuisine and decor at N9ne on West Randolph compete to outdo one another as local A-listers dine. It's not clear which wins, but the Prime-aged, bone-in rib-eye with buttery lobster tail weighs in pretty heavily for the delicious contemporary menu. If you're feeling extra hungry, try Gibson's where the entree portions and the martinis are enormous. Slip back in time to a 1940's supper club at Wildfire with the sunken center and higher peripheral booths with a wonderful, lightly smokey smell from the wood-burning grill, oven and rotisserie. You won't want to discount the succulent chicken here. Don't let the infamously gruff waitstaff at Gene & Geogetti get you down. After seventy years, they've got their steak down, even if the service can get a little grumbly. Harry Caray's gives new meaning to the announcer's famed catchphrase "Holy Cow!". This is a must for sports and food fans alike. If you like live jazz while you dine, try Pete Miller's, where you'll get traditional food with superb atmosphere.
