GreenRiver, New York City restaurateur Danny Meyer’s one-Michelin-starred restaurant in Chicago’s Streeterville neighborhood will close its doors on January 24.
“Whether you make it to a table or just end up staying at the bar, be sure to order some of the city’s most luscious beef tartare, topped with shaved horseradish, quail egg yolk, and judiciously dressed with capers, anchovies, and onion,” state Michelin inspectors of GreenRiver.
The bustling restaurant—well-loved for both its creative cuisine by executive chef Aaron Lirette and inventive cocktails—has received and maintained one Michelin star since its opening in September of 2015.
Knowing that the closure is fast approaching, Meyer is teaming with One Off Hospitality Group’s Donnie Madia and hosting a job fair for GreenRiver staff, making sure everyone lands in a great place even if not at USHG.
"Our top priority is our team members, and we are now actively involved in discussions about how best to support their career advancement during this transition," USHG posted on the restaurant's Instagram.
Best wishes to Mr. Meyer and the GreenRiver team—Chicago grows dimmer with this loss.
