Conventional wisdom holds that, before you launch a new enterprise, you should have at least one year’s operating expenses on hand. When the Chicago Chop House opened its doors in November of 1986, it did so on a wing and a prayer.
Historic Chicago dining is more than just a theme at The Chicago Chop House; it’s a way of life. Guests stepping into the restaurant’s immaculately restored, century-old Victorian brownstone building brings diners into the city’s past, when meat packers, politicians, and gangsters dined on succulent steaks in luxurious rooms. More than 1,400 historical photos tell the tale of old Chicago throughout three dining rooms surrounded by hunter green walls and lit by glowing sconces. And just like the power players of Chicago’s yesteryears, guests partake on dishes that embody the flavors that made our city one of the best dining experiences.
