500 N. Franklin St., Chicago, IL , United States

Aside from the absence of cigarette smoke, it’s hard to imagine that this classic steak-and-seafood place has changed much since it first opened in the same wood-framed house in 1941. In case you didn’t catch the clubby, old-school vibe from the all-male, white-jacketed waitstaff, red leather chairs, or the boisterous guys in suits ordering rounds of scotch at the bar, it’s obvious from the menu: unapologetically large steaks and chops, Italian standards like chicken Vesuvio and eggplant parmigiana, and shrimp De Jonghe, a butter-and-garlic-drenched specialty with a long local history. The wood-paneled downstairs dining room is often reserved for regulars, politicians, and visiting celebs, although if you make a reservation on the early side and dress well, there’s a chance you might avoid being banished upstairs.
