Barton G. to Take Over Former Sullivan’s Steakhouse Space

Chicago’s already high-profile restaurant scene is about to get a little more theatrical. Barton G., the restaurant brand known for over-the-top culinary theatrics, has signed a 12,000-square-foot lease in River North. Barton G. will transform the former Sullivan’s Steakhouse space at 415 N. Dearborn St., into its first Chicago location, set to open in November.

JLL SVP Peter Caruso and VP Michele Dugan represented the landlord, 56-02 Realty Company LLC, in the lease.

“Chicago offers one of the very best food scenes in the world, and we are proud to partner with such an exceptional culinary star who is bringing a completely unique concept to Chicago’s dining scene,” said Caruso. “Barton G. is such an innovative and inspirational restaurant with great food and great energy. We are thrilled to play a role in making Chicago their newest home.”
