By the end of the year, Bill Murray and his five brothers are set to open a 6,000-sq. ft Caddyshack-themed restaurant near their Illinois hometown of Wilmette. The new restaurant will be located in Rosemont, a village just north of Chicago.
Interestingly, it's not the brother's first eating establishment. In 2001, the six Murray brothers -Bill, Andy, Brian, Ed, Johnny and Joel- opened the inaugural Murray Bros. Caddyshack restaurant in St. Augustine, Florida.
Rolling Stone reports:
Bill's older brother Brian Doyle-Murray wrote the classic movie, which stars Bill as Carl Spackler, the loveably messed-up greenskeeper who's in constant hot pursuit of an elusive, mischievous gopher. Brian found inspiration for the film when he worked as a caddy at Indian Hill Club in Winnetka. Its flagship restaurant and bar in Florida pays homage to its namesake, with a golf-themed menu that includes crispy potato golf balls, salads aptly listed under "the greens" and items from "the front nine" and "the back nine."
The restaurant's slogan is "Eat, Drink and Be Murray."
