Chicago steakhouse reviews
The Chicago Tribune had a special centerpiece today rating Chicago's best steakhouses on a one- to three-star scale. Interestingly, Chicago Chop House didn't make the cut. The steakhouses getting three stars included Gene & Georgetti, Gibsons, Harry Caray's, Morton's of Chicago, Phil Stefani's, Ruth's Chris and Shula's Steakhouse. Not sure if Chicago Chop House being left off was a mistake or what, but I consider it one of the best in the city.
One footnote - there was a side article about ordering the 64-oz. Porterhouse at Chicago Chop House (despite the restaurant not making the overall list). The reporter and her family couldn't finish it. However, the waiter told them that one "husky" customer polished off two of the 64-ouncers in one sitting and chased them down with a 32-oz. lobster tail. The meal took 2.5 hours to eat. Any Roadfooders out there willing to admit this was them?
