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 delicious barbecue from chef D’Andre Carter at Soul & Smoke, Mini Mott's delicious burgers, fried chicken from Cleo's Southern Cuisine, creative ice cream from Shawn Michelle's and much, much more.
Once an industrial meatpacking district, the West Loop has transformed into a destination for some of the best restaurants in Chicago, a hub for corporate headquarters (hello, Google and McDonald's) and the home of an array of exciting boutique hotels. Most visitors gravitate to Randolph Street and Fulton Market, where you'll find Michelin-starred restaurants, a historic Italian deli and a subterranean ramen shop. Once you're full, try to set a high score at an arcade bar, see a show at a nearby music venue or shop at one of the city's menswear destinations. With so many great things to do in West Loop, you may want to take several afternoons to explore it all.
