The 23 Most Anticipated Food Halls in the Country: Chicago

The Marketplace at the National
Location: 125 S. Clark St., Central Loop
Projected opening: Fourth quarter of 2015
Vendors: To be announcedA historic 1907 bank building on Clark Street is being transformed into “chic industrial” office spaces, and the ground floor of the 20-story structure will be occupied by the Marketplace. Expect 10 food stalls featuring fast-casual concepts by “many of Chicago’s most respected chefs and restaurant groups.” No specific concepts have been confirmed just yet, but Michelin-starred Chicago chef Jared Wentworth (Longman & Eagle) has officially signed on to the project, with more chefs to be announced later. The project will also feature an “artisanal coffee lounge” and a vinyl record store.
