Gene & Georgetti Rosemont

Recognized as Chicago’s oldest prime steakhouse, Gene & Georgetti was founded in 1941 by Gene Michelotti and Alfredo Federighi (who was nicknamed “Georgetti” after a famous Italian cyclist). While both are now gone, their legacies live on with the River North restaurant that’s consistently listed as one of Chicago’s top steakhouses.

The menu hasn’t changed much since its humble beginnings as an Italian steakhouse. You’ll find a good number of prime steaks and classic Italian dishes made with portions generous enough to share. All steaks and chops are broiled (think lamb chops, t-bone steaks and filet mignon), and highly recommended sides range from garlic mashed potatoes to creamed spinach.

This marks the first expansion for the family owned and operated business since opening
