I have posted earlier about an upcoming trip to your great city. There is a huge variety of steak houses mentioned in replies and researching your posts. And I mean a HUGE NUMBER of places. It seems that there is nothing approaching a steak consensus.
I am looking for a great (really good works, too) steak. My two all time favorites were a NY strip from Gene & Georgetti about 15+ years ago and a Tuscan steak in Florence/Firenze a couple years ago. I also cook and grill a lot at home and have cooked/grilled some great beef, including dry aged and grass fed.
So, I hope to get a steak to talk (and not brag about) and remember for at least a few years. Scene is not important- actually less or no scene is preferred. Decent wine list and sides are a plus.
Please help a Californian looking for a quintessential midwestern/Chicago experience.
