I'm taking my 90 year old grandmother for lunch on Wednesday with my fiance. I want to go to an "old school" place, particularly because my grandmother loves shrimp dejonge. Has anyone been to Gene and Georgetti's for lunch? I know they are known for their charred steaks (having browsed all the chow posts already).
But they have a very limited steak offering on their lunch menu. Has anyone had their pastas (I saw mostaccioli on the menu!!! I hadn't heard that in so long! Having lived in new york and LA for the past 10 years, I realized this must be a local chicago pasta).
So what's good at G&G's for lunch. Stick to the meant? Go for the pasta? Any stand out deserts?
Another option I scouted out was Myron and Phil's in Lincolnwood. We are actually staying in Evanston, but driving is not a problem.
