Harry Caray's Italian Steakhouse, Chicago
Named “Best Steakhouse in Chicago” by the Chicago Tribune Dining Poll, Harry Caray’s Italian Steakhouse attracts fans of steak…and sports.
Harry Caray was a radio and television sportscaster who covered five major league baseball teams and spent the last sixteen years of his career broadcasting for the Chicago Cubs. Before that, he called games for the Chicago White Sox, and it was at old Comiskey Park that that he inaugurated the singing of “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” during the seventh inning stretch.
Caray was also notorious for loving a good time and a good meal. But why an Italian steakhouse? Because Harry Caray, though his name wouldn’t suggest it, was born Italian. His birth name was Harry Christopher Carabina, and he changed it before he became a media personality.
Though it might seem that a place like Harry Caray’s Italian Steakhouse is getting by on the notoriety of its namesake owner, it’s clear that this place serves an awesome steak, a world-class steak, a Chicago steak.
