In just a few days, there will be literally nothing left but memories inside the site of Charlie Trotter's world-famous Chicago restaurant.

On Dec. 12, Trotter is set to auction off everything that remains of his now-shuttered eatery, from the one-of-a-kind Bernardaud China to the artwork on the walls.

The 11 a.m. auction will be held at Trotter's Lincoln Park location and will be coordinated by Elgin-based auction consultants Bunte Auction Service and Auction Consultants Inc., Crain's Chicago Business reports.

Eager buyers outside Chicago will be able to bid online through, reports DNAinfo Chicago. DNA also grabbed a look at some of the items stacked, sealed and packed in the restaurant.

Trotter will have little use for the wealth high-end appliances, cookware and furniture in his new role: Philosophy grad student. The chef closed his award-winning restaurant in September and announced plans to enroll at University of Chicago next spring.
