As spring draws tantalizingly close, new dining options are sprouting at Time Out Market Chicago. On Wednesday, March 16, Evette's will begin serving a menu of fresh Lebanese fare in Fulton Market, including shawarma wraps, fries covered in garlic sauce and salads made with thoughtfully-sourced produce.
With owner Mitchell AbouJamra at the helm, the Evette's location at Time Out Market Chicago will join the original Evette's in Lincoln Park and an outpost that serves customers at Spilt Milk in Logan Square. Recently, AbouJamra opened All Too Well in the storefront next to the original Evette's location in Lincoln Park, offering a selection of sandwiches, salads and deli items.
The menu at Evette's is inspired by AbouJamra's "Teta" (Lebanese Arabic for "grandmother"), who passed down recipes built around bold Lebanese flavors. The centerpiece of the Evette's menu is chicken or beef shawarma and halloumi, served in a wrap or on a plate. You'll also be able to try Super Garlic Feta fries topped with pink garlic sauce, feta cheese and za'atar mayo as well as a Pretty Salad made with romaine, cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, feta, fried pita, pomegranate seeds and a sumac lemon dressing.
“Many of our recipes have been passed down many generations, but not all of them are traditional,” AbouJamra said. “We’ve added a twist to the classic items and just like my Teta, all of our dishes are implemented with the best of intentions to optimize what our guests are eating—nourishing, tasty and cared for food.”
You'll be able to sample the shawarma, garlic feta fries and salads at Evette's when it officially opens in Time Out Market Chicago in Wednesday, March 16 at 11am. Like all of the other concepts at Time Out Market, Evette's will be open seven days a week, Monday through Thursday from 11am–9pm, Friday and Saturday from 11am–10pm and Sunday from 11am–9pm.
