Sinatra’s agent first brought him to Twin Anchors to try the ribs—and Sinatra stayed. The singer became a regular, stopping in frequently as he played his way through Chicago. Mary Kay Tuzi, who co-owns the restaurant, tells Chicago Eater’s Daniel Gerzina that when Sinatra came in, the restaurant would shut down to new diners while he had dinner and drinks with his buddies. He was known to post a bodyguard at the payphone so no diners could alert the masses to his presence. At the end of the meal, he’d tip everyone $100.
