Ditka's - Chicago
Ditka's Restaurant, located in the heart of Chicago's Gold Coast between Rush & Michigan, is a Chicago Landmark. Ditka's has a decidedly understated sports motif, white linen table clothes, hardwood floors, intimate leather booths & rich mahogany wood accents. Chef Tom Kenny presides over the menu with passion & expertise. Known for Chops & Steaks including the signature dish Da Pork Chop along with a wide variety of fresh, sustainable seafood and contemporary American classics. The lunch menu is full of wonderful fresh salads & sandwiches including the Best Burger in Chicago , the Fridge Burger. Service is approachable & friendly in a comfortable atmosphere. Don't be surprised to catch sight of Da Coach himself.
Their paddlesteak is excellent as well as their prime rib and filets. Great coffee, also! The side dishes are delicious and they bring you fresh bread with your meal. The staff is attentive and professional. The restaurant is obviously in a sports theme but an upscale look with rich wood walls and fine white cloth tableclothes. They have 2 floors and a space to spare. A full bar on both floors and conference rooms upstairs for private parties. There is a seperate dining area if you would just like to eat and not have televisions or the sports bar atmosphere. I highly recommend any resident or tourist go eat at Ditka's!
The service was above what is usually expected in so called restaurants. Ditka's is also one of few places where your right to maintain your right to smoke is safe and infringed upon by those who wish to tell you how to enjoy your night out. The food was in great quantity and fulfilling. A must visit if you go to Chicago
Great Service, fantastic tasting food and more choices than you can shake a stick at, plus a chance to meet Coach Ditka, what else would you want before heading out to a Bears game or a day of shopping on Michigan Avenue - your only choice!
