This beloved steakhouse in River North offers prime steaks, fresh seafood, historic photos, and some ghost stories, too! Before the location operated as a steakhouse, the historic brownstone building was a single-family residence owned by the Minier family. Robert Minier was an electrician who first made local headlines when he was credited for keeping the Alice Stafford, a steamer ship he was working on, from exploding in the middle of Lake Michigan. Unfortunately, tragedy struck the Minier family in 1906, when Robert’s daughter, Florence passed away at the age of nine. Her spirit is said to linger the building and witnesses have reported hearing a child crying, seeing wine glasses fly off the bar before shattering on the floor, lights turning on and off on their own, and sightings of apparitions on each level of the restaurant. The most paranormal hot spot at the steakhouse is said to be on the third floor in the evening. So, if you’re in the mood for some wine, dining, and ghosts – be sure to check out The Chicago Chop House!
