Following in the delightfully oversized footsteps of Revival Hall, Latinicity and the Loop's forthcoming Wells St. Market, another food hall is slated to descend on Chicago. This latest, just-announced hall will land on the Northeast Side, courtesy of the folks behind Furious Spoon and FireFin Poké Shop.

The large-scale eatery, appropriately dubbed Lakeview Market, will include some 20 food spots and three bars (sports, cocktail and wine) across its 16,000 to 17,000 square feet, at the corner of Broadway and Sheridan (3833 N. Broadway Ave.).

So far, the dangerously good Budlong Hot Chicken, the ever-expanding Furious Spoon Ramen Shop and FireFin Poké Shop—poke is having something of a moment, perhaps you noticed—are all confirmed on board. Mixologist Dustin Drankiewicz, who helped the team steer the late Two Way Lounge into Deadbolt in Logan Square—is also lending a hand.

"Food halls are ideal for incubating up-and-coming concepts and chefs, as well as established restaurateurs,” said managing partner Anshul Mangal in a press release. “Less cost, less risk and plenty of opportunity."

Lakeview Market market will be a part of and help anchor a mixed-use development, which will see 135 residential units. Hours of operation are not finalized but a weekday schedule of 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. is possible—with certain vendors will potentially open until midnight on weekends. We'll let you know as soon as we hear more confirmations, and we look forward to running the gauntlet.
