I've been perusing this board and Gayots and the guidebooks and I've narrowed it down to these two. No need to debate Chicago Chop House, Tavern on Rush, Gene and Georgetti, Keefer's, Capital Grille, or your other favorites. We've narrowed it down to these two.
Gibson's - Pro's: An only in Chicago experience with good/great steaks and a history.
Morton's - Really well regarded, started in Chicago. Con: Now it's a chain and can it truly be regarded as "only in Chicago?'
For a point of reference the best steak/unique steakhouse experience we've had was Peter Luger's, the Brooklyn location in NYC. Been-there-forever atmosphere. Excellent martini's. Superior steak quality. If we could find this again in Chicago we'd be happy campers.
Which one should we choose?
