Gibsons - Chicago Rush St. - Chicago
One of the kings of Chicago steakhouses resides in the Gold Coast with the popularity of Gibsons. Its appeal goes far beyond the Chicago scene as it's consistently listed as one of the country's highest-grossing restaurants.
The steady stream of local power-brokers, celebrities and tourists congregate in the piano lounge and dining room for classic cuts of USDA prime Angus beef. You'll find cuts here larger than its competitors; averaging 14 ounces to 26 ounces for filets, sirloins and Porterhouse. Adding to that, sides large enough to share, enormous desserts and famously large martinis are almost incidental. Suburban outposts are located in Oak Brook and Rosemont.
