Fulton Market remains a construction zone, but three floors above street level on top of Beatrix, Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises has built a rooftop restaurant and bar with a private event space that offers an escape with gorgeous views of the city. Aba is chef CJ. Jacobson’s counterpart to Ēma, his River North restaurant, and he’ll also serve a Mediterranean menu in Fulton Market. The cocktails are from bartending superstar Liz Pearce, known for her drinks at The Drifter in River North. The private event space is called The Dalcy. Everything opens on Thursday.
Aba is a 4,000-square-foot dining room and patio area with fire pits and fireplaces at 302 N. Green Street. There are tons of plants and French street lamp pendants inside with skylights meant to make customers feel like they’re summering in the Mediterranean. Diners will slice through prime cuts of lamb and halibut with harissa crust and mushroom sauce. Red beet tzatziki is a bright take on an old favorite.
There’s no shortage of private event spaces in the West Loop and Fulton Market for weddings and parties, and now Chicago’s largest restaurant company has entered the market. The Dalcy is Lettuce Entertain You’s largest private event space at 6,000 square feet with room for 600 people for reception-style events.
