beef for a solo diner?

I recently made a blind leap here from the west and since I know no one but crave red meat, I'd like to find places that accomodate the lone customer. A couple weekends ago I tried Harry Caray's (quickly picked from Citysearch's Audience pick list). I was *very* out of place, seated by myself at a 4-person table in a sea of packed tables. Also, although the bone-in ribeye was extremely tasty it was not a center cut--the lovely appearing slab was marred by discovering that a solid third of the steak consisted of the thick edge of fat with a sizeable extension right through the middle. Perhaps the server sensed the rookie vibes I was putting off? Where can I go for beef by myself where I'll have a better experience? I live to the north and work in the loop, travel by el and bus. Thank you!
