    I'm a dedicated steak-a-holic. My thoughts for you:

    As has been said, if its a blow out, its a blow out. You do get what you pay for with steak. With some places mentioned (e.g. Weber Grill), IMHO you'd do better getting a great steak from a butcher and cooking it at home.

    Primehouse: Very good.

    Chicago Cut: Probably more expensive, but better than Primehouse.

    Joe's Seafood (stone crab): Believe it or not, I think their dry aged prime ribeye is among the best.

    RPM Italian: Don't laugh. Their dry aged steaks (Rib steak, porterhouse for 2) is perhaps the best steak in Chicago. Dry aged for a minimum of 28 days, they source it from a top butcher in The Bronx (I think Luger has a connection with the supplier, too). Some of the best I've had.

    If I had to pick, I'd do one of the above. Take a look on MenuPages and see what might fit your budget, then go for it.
