The list of highly-touted, award-winning restaurants in Chicago is long, and the list of celebrated steakhouses in the Windy City is even longer. But earlier this month, one local steakhouse was specifically mentioned as one of the top places in the country to eat, and which one might come as somewhat of a surprise.

Recently, Eater Chicago featured a great list of year-round patios in Chicago, but here are just a few of our favorites:

Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba - Lincoln Park

With Thanksgiving right around the corner and Chicago being one of the top food cities on the face of the planet, we thought we’d have a little fun this week and add a series of posts that talk about all things food in Chicago. 

To kick off our “Restaurant Week” theme, talking about what’s arguably the hottest new restaurant in town right off the bat seems to make the most sense, so let’s dive a little deeper into what the one-and-only Gibson’s Italia has to offer foodies in the Windy City. 

Having just opened last month, this chic new Italian steakhouse consists of three separate levels, which includes a gorgeous third-level bar with a retractable roof that screams summertime hotspot. The views from the bar are supreme and overlook the Chicago
