Erie Cafe - Chicago

This Italian steakhouse located on the north branch of the Chicago River is a classic, clubby neighborhood eatery, with large picture windows draped in floral chintz, as well as plenty of brick, wood paneling and white tablecloths.

Formerly a meat packing plant, Erie Cafe features a bar and fireplace (in the banquet room) crowned with a huge elk head. The restaurant is from the third generation of the Gene & Georgetti steakhouse family and there are vintage photos throughout the space showcasing the history.

Portions are especially generous at Erie Cafe, from the Italian-focused side of the menu to steaks, chops and seafood selections. Weekend specials include lasagna and prime rib of beef.
