Perhaps the most famed chef in the history of this city is gone. According to multiple reports, Charlie Trotter was found dead at his Lincoln Park home this morning. He was 54.

The Tribune reports that Trotter's son Dylan found Charlie unconscious and called an ambulance. He was soon pronounced dead at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

Trotter closed his groundbreaking eponymous restaurant last year and has been in and out of the news since. Look for more details as they become available.
