A shrine to the legendary Cubs play-by-play announcer, this landmark building is a repository for Harry's staggering collection of baseball memorabilia. The main dining room, with its high tin ceilings and brick walls, has a certain retro charm, and the food is better than you'd expect from a celebrity restaurant. The menu is a greatest hits list of Italian-American favorites: mounds of pasta with red sauce, bone-in chicken Vesuvio, veal piccata, and a variety of seafood. Harry's is also a good place to order massive plates of meat: dry-aged prime steaks, lamb, veal, and pork chops. If you don't want a full-service meal, the bar is a lively place for watching a game and grabbing some munchies—and, incidentally, the bar is 60 feet, 6 inches long, the same distance from the pitcher's mound to home plate.
Harry Caray's also has a location on Navy Pier, 700 E. Grand Ave. (tel. 312/527-9700).
