We are “Sharing the Love” from the City of Brotherly Love! Monti’s is an Authentic Philly Cheesesteak Bar in Lincoln Square.

Like every good Husband and Wife Team, Chef James Gottwald and Jennifer Monti negotiated when they created their dream restaurant together. Chef James wanted a place where he could relax with a beer and a Cheesesteak while watching a game. Jennifer wanted someplace stylish but not too stuffy, where she could share a cheese plate and some wine with friends. They both agreed on some “Philly-flare” showing their hometown roots!

Chef James and Jennifer are both from Philly and while they love Chicago they missed their favorite foods like Philly Cheesesteaks, Hoagies and Tastykakes. Talk about an easy decision when coming up with a concept for their first restaurant together! Philly Cheesesteak Bar! Combining the best of both Philly and Chi-Town…the rolls are Amoroso from Philly and the Rib-eye is from the Midwest!

Swing by Monti’s to check out the fun neighborhood vibe and casual menu featuring Authentic Philly Cheesesteaks, Pizza, Hoagies and more!

Why “Monti’s” and not “Gottwald’s”? James lost the coin toss!
