Opening day for the highly anticipated Time Out Market Chicago is just around the corner.
Finishing touches are being put on what’s being described as a “a food and cultural market that will bring the best of the city under one (very large) roof.”
It was announced today that the market will be ready for its close up–opening to the public–onThursday, November 21 at 8 a.m.
Located in the “hot” Fulton Market District at 916 W Fulton Market, the urban styled space will feature 18 chefs and restaurateurs, creative craft cocktails, culinary and cultural experiences from local talent and more—all handpicked by Time Out Chicago’s editorial team.
Spanning 50,000 square feet and three floors, the space offers three bars, a demonstration kitchen, an event kitchen, an entertainment platform with bleacher seating and an all-season rooftop bar complete with impressive skyline views.
In addition to announcing the opening date, Time Out Market Chicago revealed the final additions to its lineup:
- Band of Bohemia. The Michelin-starred brewpub, rooted in the namesake bohemian spirit of collective ingenuity and dedicated to providing an elevated level of cuisine, libations and service will bring its unique concept to the Market.
- Decent Beef. Chef Kevin Hickey and Brandon Phillips spent a lot of time developing their own spin on Chicago’s beloved Italian Beef, respecting the original flavors and building the sandwich with the finest ingredients and best techniques that will offer a fresh take on Italian beef with the debut of Decent Beef.
- Sugar Cube. Christine McCabe and Jason Chan—two long-standing hospitality industry veterans and friends —have joined forces to create Sugar Cube, a new dessert concept that celebrates old-school Americana with new-school sensibilities and whimsical sweet treats.
- AND Tortello. Hosted at the second-floor demo and event kitchens, diners will learn techniques of making various types of pasta from Tortello’s head sfoglina (pasta maker) Alex Mulgrove, using imported Italian flour and local eggs. Following the class, guests will enjoy a family-style dinner, prepared by the team at Tortello led by executive chef Duncan Biddulph.
