Trattoria Gianni - Chicago
Location, cuisine and atmosphere just are not enough to save this place. If the theater's moved this would be the first corpse. Am I being clear... THIS PLACE SUCKS!
Located in the heart of the Lincoln Park theatre district -- directly across the street from Steppenwolf theatre and around the corner from Royal George -- Trattoria Gianni has long been a destination for theater-goers before and after shows. Given its proximity to the theaters, a visit to Gianni's may include rubbing elbows with the stars, as some of Gianni's psat high-profile visitors include the likes of John Malkovich, Nicole Kidman, Gary Senise, John Cusack and Mayor Daley. The restaurant celebrated 25 years in 2013.
