Ditka's - Chicago - Chicago
"Iron" Mike's upscale hangout for all his sports buddies offers hearty, meaty fare in the Chicago location and in its other restaurant in Oakbrook Terrace and Trackside in Arlington Heights. There are three main components: a main dining room, a spacious sports lounge and an upper level usually reserved for private events.
"Da Pork Chop" is Ditka's signature dish, and it consists of a Berkshire chop topped with apple chutney and cherry jus, and accompanied by mashed sweet potatoes. Other menu highlights include the BBQ baby back ribs, Coach's pot roast nachos and fried chicken.
And for those in the mood for steaks, they're wet aged for a minimum of 28 days. Choices are bountiful, with a boneless prime New York strip and Angus prime rib at the top of the list.
