Revival Food Hall Stimulates Chicago’s Food Scene With Diversity

Revival Food Hall has brought together Chicago’s favorite culinary delights in one beautiful venue.

Chicago’s neighborhoods have led the resurgence in the Chicago food scene. But, the far-spread locations are inconvenient for the hard-working Chicagoans during the work week. The Revival Food Hall brings acclaimed Chicago neighborhood restaurants to a more convenient location.

Located in the historic 1907 Daniel Burnham’s The National, the Revival Food Hall features many Chicago favorite restaurants in a casual grab-and-go setting. With 15 fast casual stalls, working professionals will have tremendous variety in this centrally located venue. Highlighting the demand for culinary diversity, the Revival Food Hall should draw large crowds from the 250,000 professionals in the area.

The Revival Food Hall is a creation of 16” on Center owners Bruce Finkelman and Craig Golden. This partnership has gained much success in the Chicago food scene. Their well-received restaurants, like Dusek’s Longman & Eagle and Punch House, are hotspots in Chicago culinary circles.

“Chicago’s food scene has long been home to some of the most creative culinary concepts in the country. With so many eclectic, food-forward options in the neighborhoods, why shouldn’t the city’s most densely populated workforce experience this same type of variety downtown during the workweek?” says Bruce Finkleman of 16”on Center about Revival Food Hall.

With 24,000 square feet of culinary deliciousness, Revival Food Hall has a food stall for almost every culinary genre. A sampling of the Revival Food Hall restaurants include: Smoque BBQ, Danke (Table, Donkey and Stick), Black Dog Gelato, and The Fat Shallot. The smaller, relaxed food stalls give Chicagoans the opportunity to sample popular Chicago chefs and restaurants. Introducing new flavors, combinations or culinary points of view can create a great desire to explore the chef’s other Chicago locales.

One special addition to the group is Revival Café and Bar. Curated by James Beard Award Winning chef Mindy Segal, this multi-roaster coffee shop, full bar and bakery will delight coffee drinkers and cocktail lovers. A mainstay in the Chicago culinary scene, Segal’s Mindy’s Hot Chocolate is continually a favorite with Chicago foodies. Always clear on her vision, this coffee, cocktail and bake shop should be a must visit.

To keep the food scene vibrant, Revival Food Hall will feature a rotating pop-up stall. Changing every three to four months, this pop-up stall will keep Revival’s food scene fresh. Business and lunch customers will never suffer from the plain, boring to-go items.
