Harry Carays Restaurant
|Formerly:||Kinzie Steakhouse||Formerly:||Chicago Varnish Company Building|
A lot of buildings are either culturally significant, or architecturally interesting. In the case of this branch of Harry Caray's restaurant, it is both. The building is a celebration of Dutch architecture with its red brick facade, and stepped gables accented in white. The windows, doors, and virtually all the architectural details are similarly accented in light-colored stone with contrasting-colored bricks radiating from above the windows.

There is one comment.
The building now housing Harry Caray's was originally a manufacturing facility, built as the headquarters of the Chicago Varnish Company. At one point it was apparently residential; mobster Frank Nitti had an apartment on the fourth floor from 1939 to 1943.
