BTW, we'll stay at the Congress hotel on Michigan Ave..
=-I live downtown and have eaten everywhere many times as its part of my job: Hands down the BEST for traditional steak and seafood:
**I've eaten at Joe's over 200 times and gibson's probably 50.
Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crabhttp://www.icon.com/joes/Chicago_home.htmlhttp://chicago.citysearch.com/profile/11342712/
Big, loud and masculine, Joe's is a throwback to the days of the country-club restaurant--complete with a pompadour-coiffed, tuxedo-clad host.
#1 for the highest end of dining to compete in the world is:
8, 12, 24 course tastings with wine/alcohol progressions. It's unbelieveable !
Heat has the best sushi but is in a very odd place
Capital Grill is not bad for a 2nd
then you have morton's, sullivans all pale in comparison's to JOE"S
Gibson's is a joke; all atmosphere but average steak and seafood. Tourist's think it's good and that's about it and paid reviewers lol
