Revival Food Hall will start serving customers in The Loop sometime next week, but for now, snack on this first look inside the highly-anticipated massive chef-driven food hall. Inside The National office building, 16" on Center (Dusek's, Thalia Hall, Moneygun) has attracted a dream team of restaurant owners aiming to bring together a smattering of acclaimed offerings from all across the city: Smoque, Furious Spoon, Antique Taco and even sweets from HotChocolate, just for starters.
This isn't a food court for mall rats. Patrons won't find Sbarro or seats etched with poetry from lovelorn teens. This is a place to have lunch with coworkers, conduct an impromptu business meeting, and a food destination for tourists and residents.
Most of the kiosks have counter seating, but there are also communal tables near the Clark Street entrance. Curbside Books and Records also breaks up the space so music lovers during a lunch break can walk away with a physical copy of an album rather than just a download in the cloud. Over in the northeast corner, that's where patrons will pick up online orders.
Check out the photos below. Again, there's no opening date yet, but it will likely happen next week at 125 S. Clark St.
