We've rounded up the best chefs in the city to join us at Time Out Market Chicago, a culinary and cultural destination in the heart of Fulton Market. The 50,000-square-foot space houses 18 kitchens, three bars and one drop-dead gorgeous rooftop terrace—all spread across three floors. Our mission is simple: Bring the pages of Time Out Chicago to life with the help of our favorite chefs, the ones who wow us again and again. You'll find mouthwatering barbecue from chef D’Andre Carter at Soul & Smoke, Big Kids' delicious burger, fried chicken from Luella's Southern Kitchen and creative sweet treats from JoJo's Shake Bar. If you're thirsty, sit down at one of the Market's bars to enjoy a menu of local beer, a robust wine list or a cocktail created in collaboration with Chicago mixologists.
Variety is the spice of life and that’s exactly what you’ll find at Chicago’s food halls. Some of the city’s best restaurants have miniature outposts slinging delicious burgers, fried chicken, sushi and much more to hungry guests. If you love options or are dining with a group, these culinary destinations are perfect—they offer tantalizing bites for every type of palate. Whether it’s an Italian food emporium or a food court located in the basement of a Chinese shopping center, there’s no going wrong. And while the Loop is home to many food halls thanks to the large number of office workers, you can also venture to Chinatown, the Illinois Medical District and beyond for great fare. So don’t settle for a meal of leftovers, check out the best food halls in Chicago to sample tons of tasty choices.
