Todd Erling's Chop House in Galesburg, formerly known as The Packinghouse, has closed.

A sign on the door said the restaurant shutdown as of January first. The 100-year-old building was originally a meat packing plant.

For the past three decades it was The Packing House Dining Company. However, in June of last year the owners transferred the business to chef Todd Erling.

The inside was remodeled and a new menu introduced. There's no word yet on why the business closed. Attempts to reach the owners were unsuccessful.
