|Chicago Steakhouse to Bear Michael Jordan's Name
|(AP) -- Chicago will once again be graced with a restaurant bearing the name of basketball great Michael Jordan.
A Michael Jordan's Steak House is planned for the InterContinental Chicago Hotel on the city's famed Michigan Avenue.
The restaurant will have a street-level bar and second-floor dining room, to begin in June. The steakhouse will replace the restaurant currently in the space.
The restaurant will be the third Michael Jordan's Steak House. The others are in the Mohegan Sun casino in Connecticut and in New York City's Grand Central Terminal.
Michael Jordan's Restaurant closed in 1999 during a legal dispute with its controlling partners. Jordan, who led the Chicago Bulls to six NBA championships, won the legal battle the following year, freeing him to launch the steakhouse chain.
