Harry Caray's

33 West Kinzie St., Chicago, IL - (312) 828-0966
A high-priced, high quality Italian steak house founded by baseball's legendary announcer, Harry Caray's is the place to go not only for prime beef, but also for such Chicago specialties as Chicken Vesuvio and Shrimp de Jonghe ... not to mention beers at the bar where tipplers cheer on the Cubbies.

Porterhouse steak, Italian style. The bat, mitt, and ball are not on the menu, but they signify the baseball theme that infuses this restaurant.

Harry Caray's is located in an old Chicago building by the river that started as a varnish distribution plant. In the 1930s, mobster Frank Nitti had a hide-out apartment on the fourth floor.

Note the old brick walls of Harry Caray's dining room. History surrounds you in this classic Chicago steak house.

Everything about Harry Caray was bigger than life. This huge mural on the side wall of the restaurant captures his, shall we say, outgoing personality.

Harry Caray's is a steak house, but seafood here is no second fiddle. This is a plate of gnocchi loaded with shellfish.

Harry Caray's bills itself as an Italian steak house. This is its version of the Chicago favorite, Italian beef.
