"El Che Steakhouse & Bar is inspired by my time spent eating, drinking and traveling in Argentina, which has the greatest grilling traditions in the world, from the parilladas of the cities to the country asados every weekend. The intoxicating scent of beef and vegetables cooking over an open fire permeates the air. These sensations are not foreign to anyone who has spent time cooking outdoors — be it in their own backyards or over a campfire — anywhere in the world.
El Che is also an expression of cooking in Chicago, in the Midwest, today. My passion and my interest lie in South America, but my roots, my family and my career are here."
-Executive Chef/Partner, John Manion
