A shrine to the legendary Cubs play-by-play announcer, this landmark building is a repository for Harry's staggering collection of baseball memorabilia. But you don't have to be a baseball lover to appreciate Harry's.
Although you'll be surrounded by baseball mementos at the bar, the dining rooms have an old-fashioned feel, with high tin ceilings, exposed brick walls, and white tablecloths. It would be easy to lump Harry's with other celebrity restaurants, but as one reviewer pointed out, the food is better than it has to be. The portions are enormous here; you'll have enough left over to eat for days. Main-course offerings run from traditional items such as pastas with red sauce to chicken Vesuvio, veal, and a variety of seafood choices. Harry's is also a good place to order big plates of meat: dry-aged steaks, lamb, veal, and pork chops. From the list of side dishes, be sure to order the signature Vesuvio potatoes. The restaurant also has a (surprisingly) extensive and well-chosen wine list. If you don't want a full-service meal, the bar is a lively place for watching a game and grabbing some munchies -- and, incidentally, the bar is 60 feet, 6 inches long, the same distance from the pitcher's mound to home plate.
