LINCOLN PARK — The wife of famed Chicago chef Charlie Trotter, who died unexpectedly in November, is selling their Lincoln Park home.

The home in the 1800 block of North Dayton Street was listed at $2.695 million and placed on the market Monday.

Trotter's wife Rochelle Trotter has recently spoken about her plans to create an "institute of learning" and library in her husband's name and in January told DNAinfo.com she planned on an "aggressive year of capital-building for the foundation."

Rochelle Trotter said she has not been living at the 5-bedroom 5,200 square foot home, because there is no need for such a big place. Just being in the neighborhood, passing the now-shuttered restaurant, is "still very raw," she said last month.

The three-story home features 4 and a half baths, a conservatory with roof deck and skyline views, a wine cellar and a pizza oven, according to the listing on Koenig and Strey.

The restaurant at 816 W. Armitage Ave. also remains for sale.

Trotter put it up for sale in June as well as the adjoining building next door for $3.8 million.

Charlie Trotter's opened in 1987, and later became known as one of the world's best restaurants.

His death, caused by a stroke at age 54, shocked the culinary world.
