Gibson's steaks are okay. Not my favorite by any means, but better than many others on the list. I detest Chicago Chop House. I also think he overrates the beef at S&W.
I do, however, second his assertion that the original Morton's is far and away the best, and David Burke's is a close second. One interesting thing is that he is so obsessed with dry aging that he never bothered to mention that Cap Grille uses choice beef (although it tastes so good you would probably never know).
Yes, too bad Morton's is such a chain, it kind of loses a bit of that exclusive luster. Capital Grille is great also (huge chain), you can't really go wrong there either. Both are light years ahead of Gibson's and I don't even consider Chop House as dismal is an understatement for multiple reasons.
