Proper Philly cheesesteaks in Chi

From an ex-Rockit chef looking to bring the flavors of his native Philly to Chi, Monti's mounds Brotherly Love (i.e., onion-studded shaved rib eye) onto authentic Amoroso's rolls and drizzles it with a Whiz-upgrading aged cheddar sauce. Variations include the Swiss/horseradish cream/'shrooms Southside Johnny, and a jalapeno/Scotch bonnet/serrano number dubbed The Rocky, probably because that's how you'll be describing your experience in the bathroom shortly thereafter.
