There was a Superman sighting of a different kind in downtown Chicago on Thursday.

Michael Jordan attended the grand opening of his new restaurant in the InterContinental Hotel, Michael Jordan’s Steak House, less than a mile from where “Man of Steel” recently filmed in the city. It was Jordan’s third visit to the River North restaurant since it opened in late August.

The Bulls legend was greeted by a large crowd on the sidewalk outside of the restaurant as well as fans who packed the median separating north and southbound traffic on Michigan Avenue. Once inside the private event, Jordan took a seat in a security-protected booth in the corner of the restaurant. He was later joined by his former Bulls teammate, Scottie Pippen, and Pippen’s wife and “Real Housewives of Miami” cast member, Larsa.
