If you happen to arrive by train to the Ogilvie Transportation Center or want to make a trip down that way, you now have another new food option at the Chicago French Market: Wisma. The upscale prepared foods grocer, started by inovasi chef/owner John des Rosiers in Lake Bluff about a year ago, officially opened its third location on Tuesday.
Just as des Rosiers said back in late November, guests to his food stall will walk into the space as if they're entering a storefront. He'll sell 60-plus different sandwiches, pastas, salads, entrees and more, all made fresh daily and ready to take away, and has a small seating area where diners can eat.
In addition to the grab-and-go housemade products, Wisma will also sell bottles of artisan soda and Mexican coke, which has real cane sugar. In the coming months, watch for bottled beer and glass-pour wines, beef from Q7 meats, chicken and eggs from Meadow Haven Farms and packaged good like Italian vinegars, olive oils, honey, truffle butter and more. To get an idea of what you'll find, check out the menu below.
