Formerly Engine Company 104 of the Chicago Fire Department, the Chicago Firehouse Restaurant is applauded not only for honoring and preserving the original 1905 Romanesque Revival architectural design but for its unwavering commitment to the building’s purpose since its inception: service.  A beloved cornerstone structure in the South Loop neighborhood for nearly 112 years, the bones of this “home” are a living narrative of a family of firefighters serving and protecting its community to a stately restaurant that honors and embraces this century-old mission.  From Chicago firefighters and Chicago socialites who built homes in this neighborhood at the turn of the century to a Chicago family restaurateur, all who serve others in this establishment embrace the spirit of family and are dedicated to serving the community. The culture of the past continues to serve the present in this iconic landmark.
