Our newest #ChromeClient Fulton Galley opened earlier this summer and they are living up to the hype of the growing food hall trend across America! As Chicago’s newest food hall and chef incubator, Fulton Galley features 5 unique chef-led concepts, a large bar and a seasonal sidewalk in the heart of West Loop. Feeling like Mexican? You can treat yourself to some tasty tacos from Taco Mucho. Or try the delicious cacio e pepe from Italianette if you are a pasta-lover. Feeling adventurous? Check out the Isan cuisine from northeastern Thailand featured at Pink Salt. Or Fairview’s Latin American-inspired restaurant is perfect for rotisserie chicken and ceviche. Breakfast is even available 7 days a week, and a bagel and schmear from Chicago’s famous Jewish deli, Steingold’s, is guaranteed to hit the spot!
At Fulton Galley, the space is split into two sections--the food hall side where guests are able to try a variety of delicious foods and the bar side which is quickly becoming a hotspot for happy hour among West Loop young professionals. The food hall is also a great spot for visitors to camp out and work from the beautiful lounge throughout the day due to its central location in walking distance from Soho House, The Hoxton and The Wing. Between all 5 restaurants, there are plenty of delectable menu items to choose from for lunch, happy hour or dinner! Below is a small taste of what you can expect to find:
Gerad Bobel and Alexis Rorabuagh, the chefs behind Italianette, offer this incredible fennel pork ragu on their menu: gemelli-tube like pasta twisted together with a saffron based dough, means “the twins” with a fennel pork sausage ragu.
Steingold’s is a Chicago staple, the Jewish deli from Aaron Steingold wants to introduce you to Uncle Rube: a hot sandwich with pastrami or corned beef, sauerkraut, swiss, and Russian dressing on rye.
Palita Sriratana wants to bring a little taste of northeastern Thailand to Chicago with her Isan street food at Pink Salt. This is Gai Tod: white peppercorn-marinated chicken tenders battered in rice flour for a light crispy crust, topped with fried shallots and served with sweet chili sauce.
Chef Dennis Bernard of Fairview wants to show guests his take on Latin American rotisserie: try half a chicken with your choice of sauce (aji verde, mole poblano, chimichurri) with a side of potatoes with aji verde, cotija cheese and chili oil.
Ron Aleman brings his authentic street tacos to the food hall with his debut restaurant, Taco Mucho. Everyone is sure to love the classic Carne Asada Tacos with spicy pico de gallo, cilantro, and radish.
