Time Out says

The Chicago location of this national chain anchors “Village Market,” a 105,000-square-foot complex in Lakeshore East whose grand scale and futuristic aesthetic are reminiscent of NYC’s Battery Park City. The restaurant seats hundreds of people, a good portion of them in a large, busy bar area. If you’re wondering whether III Forks makes a decent Manhattan, the answer is yes. And though it fumbles in other departments—wet crab cake, sub-par Caesar salad—the restaurant can indeed cook every identifiable bit of a 16-ounce USDA Prime New York strip to a perfect medium-rare. If that’s all you care about, Village Market welcomes you.

I love this upstairs space for happy hours and hangouts - fireplaces, amazing food, great open space and sort of tucked away - definite recommend for a work happy hour!


I believe this place is a bit of a hidden gem. It's very much outside the realm of places I typically frequent because of it's odd location, but it's worth staking out. The rooftop is exquisite.

I'm definitely smitten with the executive chef, whom I had the pleasure of meeting. He's from Austin and brings a charming laid back vibe to this rather upscale establishment. The food is elegant and down to earth at the same time.

I really enjoyed the house beverage that was recommended to me. I want to say it had some sort of cucumber vodka and about ten other ingredients. It was the perfect refreshment for a hot, summer evening on a gorgeous patio. Did I mention it had a fireplace?

How does III Forks end up in TimeOut's list of Chicago brunches? It doesn't open until 5 p.m.
