The wait is almost over. Time Out Market Chicago flings open its doors tomorrow, Nov 21, welcoming Chicagoans to an immersive culinary destination featuring 19 of Chicago's best chefs, three beautiful bars (plus a hidden speakeasy), an action-packed demonstration kitchen and an all-season rooftop. The 50,000-square-foot space is home to award-winning talent like Abe Conlon, Band of Bohemia, Brian Fisher, Lost Larson and Pretty Cool Ice Cream. (And that's just scraping the surface—scope out all of our eateries before you visit.)
The mission behind Time Out Market Chicago is simple: Our local editors taste their way through town, and if we discover something that’s great, it goes in our magazine and all of our coverage; if it’s unmissable, it also goes in Time Out Market Chicago. This concept was born in 2014 almost 4,000 miles away, in Lisbon, and quickly skyrocketed to one of the country's top attractions, drawing in millions of visitors every year. Now, five years later, Chicago is among five North American cities to open in 2019, joining Miami, New York, Boston and Montreal.
Here in Chicago, our editorial team gathered the best of the best—including Michelin-starred restaurants, James Beard Award-winning names and mom-and-pops we're passionate about—and invited them to join us at the market. It's so much more than the F-word (food hall); it's a culinary and cultural epicenter that's packed with amazing things to eat, drink and do. Where else can you eat a slice from Art of Pizza, pop dumplings from Bill Kim, sink your teeth into a Mini Mott burger and wash it all down with a Malört cocktail? Lucky for you, we're open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, so come back often.
We've got a sneak peek of Time Out Market Chicago for you below—take a look around, and then drop whatever you're doing and visit us on opening day tomorrow.
