Re:Farmer Browns in Waterloo NE makes the top 21 "Thrillist"
I agree with one of the commenters that the omission of Gene and Georgetti in Chicago seems strange. I'm actually not familiar with most of the other Chicago places they listed, so maybe they are better, but we loved the place when we ate there last Fall.
Murray's -- I've had mixed experiences there. It used to be the quintessential upscale Midwestern supper club -- a little old fashioned, but great fun. I always took out of town guest speakers there because it was open late with a full menu, and even sophisticated New Yorkers thought it was fabulous. But then they remodeled it and the atmosphere has become less distinctive. The steaks are still good, but it's just not the same.
