Memorial set for chef killed on Northwest Side
Family and friends of Peter Rim, a suburban chef killed on Chicago’s Northwest Side last week, are hosting a public memorial for him.
The event is planned for 5 to 9 p.m. Nov. 11 at Lucky Star in Bartlett.
The owner of popular northwest suburban restaurants was fatally shot Oct. 25 in the 4100 block of West Diversey Avenue. Police and witnesses said Rim was a passenger in a vehicle when someone in an SUV pulled up and opened fire. A friend of Rim’s who was at the scene described the shooter as a man in his middle to late
20s and said there was no provocation for the attack.
Relatives said Rim, who was 46 and lived in South Barrington, was beloved by customers at his restaurants, Bistro Wasabi and El Cochino in Lake in the Hills and Bistro Wasabi in Hoffman Estates. “The outpouring of love and support from so many different people, we want to honor that,” said his brother, Steve Rim, 43.
A Chicago Police Department spokesman said Friday the case remains an active investigation. Police have released photos of a vehicle believed to have been involved in the shooting. The images show a Nissan Rogue with tinted windows and a missing front license plate. Those with information can call Area North detectives at 312-744-8261.
