A comprehensive list of Chicago food halls. These food halls provide a visitors wide range of dining options.

Food halls are wonderful for so many reasons. You can go with someone and have completely different meals. They are a venue for emerging chefs to gain and following and get their start. They are a place for established restaurants to expand and open a new location. There is something exciting about food halls. The ever changing options. The social atmosphere. The ability to try completely different cuisines all in one place.

Many food halls have popped up in Chicago over the past few years. Sadly, some have come and gone, including the Wells Street Market, Politan Row, One Eleven Chicago, and Foodlife. According to their websites, Forum 55 and Latinicity are temporarily closed.
