Chicago Cut Steakhouse often attracts celebrities like Beyonce, but now it looks like C Chicago, its younger seafood-focused sibling is getting in on the act. NBA legend Michael Jordan opted for a window seat on Saturday night, dining with his wife and three other couples, the Sun-Times reported. The G.O.A.T. is in town appearing in court after suing Dominick's for unlawfully using his name.

The check approached four digits, and MJ — used to shouldering the burden on those Bulls teams — once again stepped up and paid, tipping 20 percent. Many celebrities want privacy, but MJ didn't want a private room, choosing the table near the window, C Chicago staff told the Sun-Times. Guess he didn't want to dine at his special booth at his steakhouse.

Thank you Michael Jordan for dining with us last night!

Jordan posed for photos with staff. He and his dining companions ordered several bottles of French Burgundy. It's unknown which variety, but C Chicago's wine list includes two such bottles, one costing $155 and the other $163. They also noshed on the shellfish bouquet appetizer, plus the Dover sole and crab main courses, says the Sun-Times.

His Airness seemed to have a good time, and no one even made fun of his footwear.
