Help me choose....
I have never been to Chicago and would like a vibrant restaurant with great food. I am trying to choose two restaurants for dinner on a Wednesday and Thursday in May.
This is my short list:
Which two would you choose?
Hub 51 is good but nothing special, great lively place to grab/dinner drinks if you're in your 20's and want to bar hop after though. Gibson's I don't find worth the $ or the hype..yes I know it's a Chicago institution or whatever but there's much better steaks to be had in this city IMO.
I'd go for the Purple Pig and Avec out of those options.
I don't know of steaks with lower price points except the Brazilian steak house chains like Fogo de Chau or Texas de Brazil.
I would recommend David Burke's Primehouse and Chicago Cut Steak House for the best steaks in town and whose prices are pretty much in line with Gibson's.
