Urbanspace Food Hall more than commuter lunch spot
This fall, New York food hall creators Urbanspace opened a huge new hall in downtown Chicago at State and Washington.
- Located at the heart of the theater district, holiday shopping and touristville, it's also open Saturdays to serve the weekend shopping and brunch crowd.
On the plate: A dozen stalls with old faves and new offerings, many of which my dining mates and I couldn't fit into our gullets in one visit.
- So we stuck to newish spots instead of the fine Edzo's Burger Shop, Budlong Hot Chicken and Stan's Donuts.
- The tasty vegan chicken sandwich ($12) from Plant Junkie fooled my company into thinking they were eating meat.
- The succulent smoked brisket ($13.50) from Bianca's BBQ.
- The deliciously sauced grilled chicken phulka ($8) on fresh roti from Bhoomi.
- The sweet and salty Bee Sting Neapolitan pizza ($22) with soppressata and honey from Roberta's.
- The smoky Filipino chicken adobo ($13) with garlic jasmine rice ($2) from Isla.
Other details: For now, the 12,000 square food hall feels open and spacious enough to easily eat 6 feet away from others.
- While Urbanspace technically opens at 7am on Saturdays, all the stalls but Stan's are closed until 11 am.
