Two years after a fire devastated its landmarked building, the longstanding steakhouse has risen from the ashes and will reopen—“enhanced,” according to principal Matt O’Malley—in January.
O’Malley says the DNA of the place remains intact, and certain design elements, such as parts of the original tin ceiling, were reconstructed. Enhancements include a landscape mural in the dining room, mimicking the type of décor that was en vogue in 1905 when the building was erected. “We are making an effort to put history back in,” he says.For those who forgot, the Chicago Firehouse suffered a massive fire approximately two years agoLo.
While not a "trendy" steakhouse, it is a solid one and one that we're excited to see reopen.
