Harry Caray's Bar (Harry Caray's Italian Steakhouse) (Chicago)
Harry Caray's Bar in the Harry Caray's Italian Steakhouse, 33 West Kinzie Street, Chicago USA. Now this place is beautiful and full of history. Harry was the famous Chicago Cubs broadcaster, who passed away a few years ago. Upon the 4th floor, Frank NITTI lived. NITTI was the enforcer for Al CAPONE, his in laws owned the building. In 1998 during renovations the discovered secret tunnels, safe and room used by NITTI and CAPONE. You can go down stairs and see if for free. Back to the bar....the situp bar is long and seats about 20 people. There are 10 tables along the window and they each sit 4 people per table. There are all kinds of sports and celebrity memorabilia through out the bar and steakhouse. This place is beautiful, I just can't say enough about it! We got to sit and watch the Chicago Cubs vs San Francisco Giants there as well. For lunch I had the grilled corned beef sandwich which was about 2 inches thick, topped off with coleslaw and cheese. It came with home made french fries. My wife had the chicken pesto sandwich with Swiss cheese and fresh spinach and that was also very good. I must say that was one of the best corned beef sandwiches ever!! They also serve every one deep fried potato slices. They have 14 different types of beer on tap. Great place, I give it 2 thumbs up and highly recommend it if you are in Chicago!!
