Gene & Georgetti Anniversary Dinner Is $15.25!


The legendary steak resto Gene & Georgetti celebrates 70 years in July, and they're doing it up big.


They're marking the milestone with three nights of what they're calling "throwback" dinners, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Common Threads, Standing Tall and St. Vincent de Paul Center.

That's so cool of them, but what's even sweeter is that these throwback dinners are four-course, prix-fixe menus that will only cost you $15.25 per person. Woot?! And it gets better. Your meal includes two cocktails. We're talking classic sippers like Manhattans, Old Fashioneds and Rob Roys. Double Woot?!
