Lawry’s The Prime Rib will be closing its location on Ontario Street just off the Magnificent Mile at the end of the year.
The last day of service at Lawry’s The Prime Rib, 100 E. Ontario St., will be Thursday, Dec. 31. The location has been in operation for 46 years.
The steakhouse was founded in Beverly Hills, California by brothers-in-law Lawrence Frank and Walter Van de Kamp in 1938, but it has had a home in the McCormick Mansion on Ontario Street since 1974.
The Chicago location is part of Lawry’s president and chief executive officer Ryan Wilson’s fondest memories.
The decision to close was not an easy one. But an expiring lease, mixed in with the COVID-19 pandemic and the civil unrest in recent months in Chicago, was a sign to make change.
“I think it’s been a long closure. I think it’s been compounded by all the very disturbing social unrest and protest in the city,” Wilson said, “and that’s impacted our business, but I think that one also just has really impacted my concern for the safety of our coworkers.”
