America’s 50 Best Steakhouses-GENE & GEORGETTI, CHICAGO The poet Carl Sandburg called Chicago the "Hog Butcher for the World" — but its famous stockyards were long known as a source of great beef, too, and since 1941 this old-style Italian-flavored steakhouse (start your meal with Italian sausage and peppers, minestrone, or fried ravioli) has done beef proud. The steaks are broiled and dependably good; the bone-in filet mignon is not to be missed.
#Chicago: Gene & Georgetti was founded in 1941 by Gene Michelotti and his partner Alfredo Federighi, who was nicknamed “Georgetti” after a famous Italian cyclist. Located in the heart of River North, Gene & Georgetti is Chicago’s oldest and one of its finest steakhouses. Partners Gene and “Georgetti” worked hand in hand to establish the reputation of excellence that is continued through today.
Gene And Georgetti Chicago - A Chicago institution when it comes to a good old Chicago steakhouse. And a fixture in River North. Gossip was it was a notorious mob hangout. But anyway you slice it, the place has great steaks. A must while in Chi-town.
