Skokie Club Restaurant
The current location of a restaurant opened in 1912, the Skokie Club celebrates its approaching centennial serving a menu of traditional American dishes. Start suppers with a large greek salad topped with feta, anchovies, and an original house dressing ($10.95) or an order of saganaki, baked greek cheese flamed tableside to make sure it doesn’t cool or fade back into the Force before reaching the plate ($6.95). Carnivorous clientele sate predatory instincts with wide variety of hearty entrees such as the broiled New York Strip steak ($19.95) or a full slab of barbecue baby back ribs seasoned with a secret rub and buried under a layer of sweet sauce ($19.95). Diners can create their own pasta dish with their choice of pasta and sauce topped with chicken ($17.95), shrimp ($18.95), or scallops ($18.95). Pescatarians erase aqueous appetites with a broiled Lake Superior whitefish, while Lake Barely Passable fillets languish in grocery-store bargain bins ($17.95).
