Looks like Charlie Trotter is getting rid of more than just his wine collection; Grub Street reports that the Chicago legend will be auctioning off everything from his restaurant, dashing hopes that Charlie Trotter's will be revived after Trotter finished up grad school.
Currently, the preview of the auction lists Trotter's china, Riedel glassware, flatware, and more, most of them one-of-a-kind designs for Trotter's.
As Grub Street notes, sentimental items are also for sale, including a signed bottle of Schramsberg from Trotter's 20th anniversary, as well as a Girardet menu, where Trotter started his career.
The restaurant's artwork is also up for grabs; photography, modern contemporary art, and framed menus from Paul Bocuse, Elan Ducasse, and Marc Veyrat are listed on the auction catalogue, from Auction Consultant/Bunte Auction Service. A full catalogue is coming soon, but for now, preview some of the items here. The auction will take place on Dec. 12 and shoppers can place bids through bidspotter.com. Let's just hope the items don't disappear like his wine did.
