Charlie Trotter Day Menu at KITCHEN 1540
What is Charlie Trotter Day you ask?
Charlie Trotter was an advocate of ethical cooking and greatly involved with philanthropic efforts both in and outside of the restaurant industry. His restaurant, “Charlie Trotter’s”, in Chicago, garnered scores of awards from The James Beard Foundation to the Michelin Guide, and legions of chefs worked for him before going on to open their own establishments. A year after his passing, August 17 has been proclaimed Charlie Trotter Day by The State of Illinois.
On this Saturday, August 16 and Sunday, August 17, KITCHEN 1540’s Culinary Team invites you to commemorate the opening of Charlie Trotter’s restaurant and celebrate his lasting legacy. Dedicated to the craft of melding classic technique with modern cuisine, KITCHEN 1540 will serve a special 3-course menu of the Trotter’s dishes as a nod to the famed chef, who was an extraordinary cook and mentor.
If you are a foodie – and who isn’t? Please join us for dinner this Saturday and Sunday to partake in this very special menu.
