Gibsons, perhaps Chicago’s most famous steakhouse, has been around for decades. With great ambience, staff, side dishes and most importantly, all sorts of meat, it offers a premium dining experience to all Chicagoans and visitors. Eating Gibsons, just like eating a Chicago-style deep dish pizza, is a must-do if you are around the city. The menu is absolutely filled! For those with different appetites, all sorts of different meats and dishes come available in different portions. Eat however and whatever you want, but make sure to taste one of those juicy steaks; the quality is even awarded by USDA! (In fact, Gibsons is the only restaurant in the entire country to have the quality of their beef certified by them). Don’t miss out on that quality and experience, it is the best you can get in the city!
- Maple & Ash
As one of the rather new steakhouses in the Gold Coast, Maple & Ash stands out for its unique cooking method (duh, the name!). The exciting seafood menu (you must try the caviar), and fine wines will make your night unforgettable. The ambience is as gorgeous as it gets, no fancy colors and lights, just the right amount of style. But forget all of this. You didn’t click on this article for a well-decorated place with fancy wine. It is the beef that matters and here, you get it only the best way. The dry-aged steaks, cooked to perfection with the help of maple wood, will absolutely blow your minds. Maple & Ash may not be as traditional as some of the other restaurants in this list, but beware, it’s tastier than them.
