I'm an ex-Chicagoan who relies on Chowhound for my twice-yearly visits. I did my searches and checked the tipsheet. Now perhaps some of you can assist with my specific request. I'm meeting my sister at the Palmer House this Wednesday (paths crossing on business) and we want a good steak dinner in a comfortable not-too-noisy space. Two women in business attire who enjoy steak and martinis. I'm thinking the original Morton's or G&G. Guidance please?
Another option is Italian--grandma style or trattoria, not too far from the Loop. La Scarola? Follia?
Of course, if her plane's late, we'll end up at Miller's Pub!
