    On the same corner since 1932, this comfy tavern touts its slow-cooked baby back ribs as the world’s best. Maybe not, but they are the falling-off-the-bone sweet-sauced kind beloved by many Chicagoans.

    Nobody really comes to this sleek nightclubby spot for the reimagined and goofily named Asian dishes—people come for the flashy cocktails and the scene. But as long as you’re here, don’t miss the Devil’s Basket of spicy soft-shell crabs.

    Rudy Malnati Jr. carries on the tradition of Chicago-style pizza in this festive spot. The buttery deep-dish remains among Chicago’s best.

    Chicago’s most hallowed Italian beef is at this shack, which boasts the same thin-sliced beef, hot or sweet peppers, and soggy French roll as always. Cash only.

    The trendoids rule at Giuseppe Tentori’s slick small-plate draw. The cold dishes are good, but hot dishes are great—especially the oyster po’ boy sliders and the just-different-enough clam chowder. A foie gras and shrimp terrine actually tastes like a natural coupling, while a coconut sundae with French curry ice cream tastes atypical. No—special.

    Chicken, seafood, and Italian options take a back seat to the wet-aged prime beef at this iconic steak house. Iceberg salad and ho-hum potatoes accompany most entrées. The place could not be any less hip, but that’s a small sacrifice for steaks this good—it can stay frozen in time forever.

    Prime digs near Millennium Park and ritzy comfort food such as vindaloo mussels, locally crafted sausage, and a prime burger keep this gastropub abuzz.

    Sangría flows at this lively tapas bar. Best bets: thin ham with Manchego and tomato bread or the char-grilled octopus with french fries. Pintxos lounge upstairs on weekends.

    With wine and cheese galore, dinner seems expendable at this vino-centric draw.

    Precious few steak houses offer both wet- and dry-aged prime beef. Count Benny’s in. Grilled romaine with lemon garlic vinaigrette primes the palate; blue cheese croquettes among the must-have sides. Pan-seared walleye with chive butter sauce for seafoodies. Awesome wine list first; rich s’mores cheesecake last.

    Sure, the rib eye is delicious at Brendan Sodikoff’s sexy bi-level spot. But the true stunners are found outside the menu’s steak section. A gigantic meatball nested among chewy hand-cut noodles is simplicity perfected; ditto the lemony roast chicken and the prime rib sandwich that drips with smoky Monterey Jack. Augment your meal with the city’s best old fashioned and a wedge of velvety chocolate cream pie.
