Harry Caray’s Italian Steakhouse

Project Summary

Harry Caray's flagship location in Chicago's popular River North neighborhood opened in 1987. The restaurant is housed in a treasured architectural landmark building, once home to Frank Nitti, the infamous "enforcer" in Al Capone's gang.

The sophisticated, high energy restaurant pays tribute to the beloved Chicago Cubs sportscaster for whom the restaurant is named.

Harry Caray's was named "Best Steakhouse in Chicago" by the Chicago Tribune Dining Poll, Best of Citysearch Poll and Metromix.
