Description: Harry Caray was the ultimate baseball fan. He also spent 53 years broadcasting baseball games -- first for the St. Louis Cardinals, briefly for the Oakland As, and then to Chicago, where he broadcast for both the White Sox and then the Cubs. Perhaps the only thing for which he had as much passion as baseball was wining and dining. And it all came together when he opened the restaurant that has become a nationally recognized landmark with, according to Jay Leno, "the quintessential Chicago bar."
Harry Caray's Restaurant has been designated the Official Home Plate of the Chicago Cubs. The bar is 60'6", the exact distance from the pitcher's rubber to home plate, and the restaurant houses 1,500 pieces of baseball memorabilia, including a bat autographed by Sammy Sosa during his 1998 record-setting 20 home runs in a single month, as well as items from Stan Musial, Ernie Banks, Hank Aaron, Ted Williams, and others.
But the real reason to visit Harry Caray's restaurant is the food -- the "potent pasta, holy-cow steaks, and chicken fit for the chairman of the board" (Chicago Sun Times). More than 150 recipes for the best of these dishes along with stories, sidebars, and pictures make this book a memorable visit to America's Windy City.
