Revival Food Hall continues its quest to open the anti-shopping mall food court, as they've made two more vendor announcements. This time they're covering sweets. No, mall favorites Cinnabon and Orange Julius aren't coming to The Loop. Instead, Black Dog Gelato and Harvest Juicery will join 16" On Center's (Dusek's, Saint Lou's Assembly) project at 125 S. Clark St., slated to open in early August.

This will be Black Dog's third outpost, following the original in Ukrainian Village and at Chicago's French Market. They'll serve a condensed, rotating lineup of gelato in cones and cups. Root beer and Turkish floats —the latter made with coffee and cardamom sweet milk— will also make appearances.

Harvest Juicery opened in 2014 in the West Loop. They'll serve cold-pressed juices and smoothies and sell the same menu at Revival as they do in the West Loop. It will also serve as a pick-up point for Harvest's cleanse packages. Though they're still figuring things out, "seasonal" bowls and juice cocktails are in the mix in the future.

Reps say they're about half-way through vendor announcements. Last week, Revival provided an under-construction look at the project —an office building development called The National— as they're transforming the 109-year-old Daniel Burnham-designed building that was used as a bank and headquarters for ComEd and Chicago Public Schools. The chef-driven food court takes up 24,000-square-feet on the ground floor. Upstairs there's a 10,000-square-foot space for private events that will be ready later this year after the building's initial opening.
