Remember when we announced that massive food hall that is coming to the Loop, to be run by the folks behind Empty Bottle, Dusek's, Longman & Eagle and Promontory? The centerpiece of the food hall is a plan to bring in independent restaurants from Chicago's neighborhoods to populate fifteen different fast-casual spots inside. The creators have now announced the first restaurant to sign on.

Antique Taco, the twee Wicker Park taco place (that we think is actually pretty great) will be opening a new concept: Antique Taco Chiquito by Antique Taco. The menu will include many of the favorite signature dishes at the original location, as well as a breakfast menu with dishes like chorizo and egg empanadas with poblanos, potato and avocado salsa and Skillet Tacos with peppers, onion, eggs, pintos, tres queso and arbol salsa.

We're going to be closely tracking all the restaurants that jump on board with this new location. Is anyone else hoping Honey Butter Fried Chicken decides to open a second spot here?
