LINCOLN PARK — Missed your chance to get a table at Charlie Trotter's?
Here's your chance to buy the whole building.
The famous chef, who shut down his Armitage Avenue restaurant last year, is putting his building — and an adjoining one — on the market for $3.8 million.
The shuttered restaurant at 816 W. Armitage features a kitchen with more than $1 million worth of culinary equipment, according to Coldwell Banker, which is listing the buildings. Agents Suzanne Gignilliat and Bruce Heller are the agents for the listing.
The brownstone buildings up for sale were built in 1908. The restaurant features a Viennese Bierdermier style interior and wine cellars that can hold up to 10,000 bottles.
According to Coldwell Banker, the kitchen features a custom-made Bonnet range, countertop refrigeration, self-cleaning water wash hoods, spring-loaded refrigerator doors, a stainless steel ceiling with smoke-eating exhaust equipment, deck lighting below the counters and fluorescent and incandescent lights installed above the expeditor’s station. Those were installed so Trotter and his team could see a dish in the same light as a diner.
The neighboring building at 814. W. Armitage served as an office, test kitchen and set for Trotter’s PBS TV series "The Cooking Sessions with Charlie Trotter."
