Chicago resident and 27-year hospitality veteran, Matthew McCahill, (pictured) was raised in the restaurant industry. He kicked off his impressive career very early by sweeping floors at restaurants his father designed and built. McCahill grew to love the industry and steadily worked his way up from busing tables to managing restaurants alongside top chefs/restaurateurs such as Wolfgang Puck, Nick Nicholas and Charlie Palmer.

For five years, Matthew had his eye on Chicago Chop House as he walked to work on his way to his job as Director of Food & Beverage at the Godfrey Hotel. As an Irishman with deep roots in some of the best steakhouses in the U.S., McCahill began his pursuit to buy Chicago Chop House and give it the love and attention it needed.

“For over 150 years, the Irish have played a critical role in politics and Chicago history,” said Chicago Chop House Owner Matthew McCahill. “It’s only fitting for an Irishman to revive America’s best Irish steakhouse. Our goal is to make the Chicago Chop House a celebration for family and friends – as familiar and comfortable as eating a great steak in your home.”

Irish American owned when it opened in 1986, Chicago Chop House was and is the only Irish steakhouse in Chicago. From the green on the walls to some of its signature Irish-inspired menu items like their Irish meatball, the 1lb baked potato with fresh, homemade Irish butter and their famous, authentic Irish coffee (made tableside upon request) – Chicago Chop House truly celebrates its Irish heritage.

McCahill is dedicated to preserving the restaurant’s Irish roots with a complete refresh from menus to design. The new menu and wine list, launched January 2018, brings back reasonable pricing and includes legendary items such as the 64-ounce porterhouse, 12-ounce “petite” New York strip and whopping 32-ounce lobster along with new steak sizes to appeal to a variety of appetites, vegetarian options, and new savory and sweet appetizer, salads, sides and dessert items.

Designed by Collins Design & Co., the exterior update of the 1887 Victorian brownstone will be the first completion in the multi-phased renovation. New to the legendary steakhouse is a black 1938 Buick Touring Car with suicide doors on display outside the front door.  Guests can enjoy a live piano bar, relax in its beautiful, tufted-leather speakeasy dining room, or grab a coveted seat in the Victorian-inspired dining garden opening spring 2018. Chicago Chop House also has private event space accommodating up to 200 guests.   For more information call   312-787-7100 or visit
