Remembering Charlie Trotter's

Charlie Trotter in his famed dining room
Did you ever make it to the world-class restaurant that Charlie Trotter owned/chefed for decades, in Chicago? As you probably know, Trotter died suddenly on November 5th, at just 54. He had closed his famed foodie mecca a couple of years ago, saying he wanted to do something else with his life.
We managed to get there once for a fabulous, multi-course, extravagantly expensive dinner. It must have been 10 years ago, but I can well remember the evening. Strangely enough, I can't remember much about the food, only that it was a genuine pleasure to spend hours in that dining room.
Chicago remains a fantastic restaurant city, but Trotter's was unique and I'm sure has been missed.
And now he won't be doing anything else, poor man.
RIP, Charlie Trotter.
