THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Carmichael's Chicago Steakhouse Restaurant Review

: With an open, spacious and casual dining room near the United Center, Carmichael's certainly courts Bulls fans. However, the menu has wide-reaching appeal. Meals begin with either ubiquitous dishes (fried calamari, crab cakes) or with lesser-knowns, such as buffalo chicken spring rolls. Among entrées, steaks are understandably the popular menu option. The filet is especially fine, as is the petite porterhouse --- both of which can be finished with garlic-herb butter, Dubliner cheese, blue cheese and the like. For something more exotic, there’s also a bison filet, served with mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. For dessert, the apple pie in a bag is really something, with its crumbly and rich crust; pineapple-coconut cake is pretty good, too. The wine list is composed in such a way that it's easy to choose, and the prices are attractive.
