I’ve never been to a steakhouse there, but if you need a quick lunch, try the billy goat tavern. It’s near the Mile and the cheeseburgers are amazing :). Giordano’s has my favorite pizza. Have fun!

Lawry’s is really good, its steak and lobster. Ra or Sunda for sushi. Getting deep dish is something you’ll never regret- there are lots of choices there.

I’ve heard the Firehouse is good.  I’m not really a steak person, so I can’t give recommendations on that.  My favorite deep dish here is pequod’s.  Second favorite would be Lou Malnati’s, but I’ve never had to wait for a table at Pequod’s. 

Hot Doug’s has the best hotdogs/sausages I’ve ever eaten (and duck fat fries!) but you have to get there early and be prepared to stand in line for a while.  Whenever we go there, there are always people who’ve driven in from neighboring states just to go to Hot Doug’s.

I’m also a fan of Greek Islands in Greektown, and Calo Ristorante in Andersonville.  FuRama in Uptown has awesome DimSum.

Gibson’s is AMAZING. I lived in Chicago for two years and went there 3 or 4 times. Definitely pricy, but delicious.

David Burke’s Primehouse has amazing steak. We went there for our first anniversary dinner. For deep dish pizza and somewhat touristy experience, I would go to Pizzeria Due’s (sibling of Uno’s). Other restaurants I love are Blue 13, Bristol, Sepia, and Blackbird.

If you like pork as much as you like steak, I’d highly recommend The Publican for brunch. Seriously, if it were in NYC, you’d never get in, everything would cost at least $5 more, and the servers would all have massive attitude (everyone we came in contact with was ridiculously nice). FH and I really enjoyed it when we went there last May. And OMG, that thick cut bacon…
