Starting Tuesday, Sept. 15, Lawry's The Prime Rib will begin offering private tours of the former McCormick Mansion where the restaurant has been located since 1973.
According to a company news release, Lawry's is now accepting reservations for the tours, which can accommodate eight to 10 guests at a time. The restaurant's private guide, Shannon Tauschman, will provide visitors with an exclusive look into the mansion's history, which includes highlights such as a miniature opera workshop, secret second-level floor rooms and the Kungsholm puppet stage and lair.
Each tour ticket costs $80 per person, excluding tax and gratuity, includes cocktails, classic fare from Lawry's and elevated seasonal bites. Tours last two hours and have start times between 4-7 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
Reservations must be booked 48 hours in advance and can be made by contacting Tauschman at email@example.com or calling (312) 787-5000. Tours are not wheelchair-accessible, as guests must ascend and descend several flights of stairs without elevator access.
