CHICAGO | Revival Food Hall is a 24,000 square foot fast causal food court in a historic Daniel Burham building, the National, and is one of the loop’s most popular lunch spots. Loop workers have no shortage of options at Revival – from sinful to honest there is something for every taste. Early in the week when we are on good behavior we opt for one of the salads at Farmer’s Fridge. By the time Friday rolls around we head to Smoque BBQ or the Budlong.

We sat down with Marisa Kruse, Revival Food Hall’s General Manager and Bruce Finkelman, Managing Partner at 16” on Center, the local hospitality collective who operate Revival. We were lucky enough to go behind the scenes and get some insight on upcoming events taking place at Revival.

What was the inspiration for Revival Food Hall?

Marisa: We wanted to offer those who work in The Loop a new dining experience. A lot of the people who work in the area don’t have the opportunity to venture out to visit local neighborhood restaurants during the week, so we brought the best of Chicago’s neighborhood dining scene to them.

Bruce: Revival aims to create a welcoming space that gives people an all-local, chef-driven dining experience in the heart of the city. We truly want to be a beacon in the community where people want to come morning, noon and night.

What’s your favorite aspect of Revival Food Hall

Marisa: There is something for everyone! You can meet your friends here and everyone gets to have their favorite meal without settling on one specific restaurant.
Bruce: We get to work with some of the greatest culinary minds in Chicago all doing what they do best.

What’s next for Revival Food Hall?

Marisa: We’re excited about our Summer Saturday event series, offering those who aren’t in The Loop during the week a chance to experience Revival. We will be open one Saturday a month, running from June – October, hosting fun events including a pop-up bazaar hosted by The Hatchery, Revival Food Hall’s one-year anniversary bash coinciding with free Lollapalooza-prep including a braid bar and flower crown workshop, Curbside Books and Records pop-up book and record fair, as well as one of the Loop’s only behind-the-scenes architecture tours.

If you were wondering what special Summer Saturday events are on at Revival Food Hall in 2017, here’s our pick of the bunch. What’s your favourite Revival Food Hall spot?

Pop-up Food Startup Market by The Hatchery & ICNC

Help local food entrepreneurs scale and explore new innovative foodstuffs with an all-day pop-up market hosted by Chicago’s premier food business incubator The Hatchery in collaboration with ICNC. Expect a range of both dry and packaged goods, vibrant spices, organic skin care products, teas, kombucha, tastefully unique apparel and more surprises from some of the food startup world’s brightest ascendant businesses on two separate dates in June and July.
Saturday, June 17 + July 8, 11 – 4PM, Free Admission

Revival Food Hall 1-Year Anniversary & Lollapalooza Sendoff

Because Revival Food Hall turns one-year-old on Lollapalooza weekend, foodie festival goers have another excuse to celebrate with a slew of free festival workshops, drinks and all-local food offerings to prep for the summertime music fest. Revival Café Bar hosts a Free Braid Bar by Solo Salon, while the Beauty Bar’s aestheticians offers Free Manicures for a little pre-Lolla glam session. If you’re lacking the perfect accessory for the weekend, the food hall will also offer a Free Flower Crown making workshop to complete your festival outfit. Munch on special menu treats sold from RFH’s gourmet food vendors and sip on anniversary cocktails mixed by Revival Café Bar all day long.
Saturday, August 5, 11- 4PM, Free Admission

Curbside Books and Records: Pop-up Book & Record Fair

Music lovers and book worms unite as Revival Food Hall transforms into an all-day art bazaar this September. Curbside Books & Records will host the Pop-up Book and Record Fair, featuring local independent presses and Chicago record labels selling their artists and authors work throughout the event. Snag a page-turning book from presses such as Featherproof Books, Curbside Splendor Publishing and more, or purchase a record from some of Chicago’s best local record labels, including Dumpster Tapes, who will not only sell tapes, but will also DJ the event.
Saturday, September 23, 11- 4PM, Free Admission

Architectural “Open House Chicago” at The National

Enjoy the Chicago Architecture Foundation’s free public festival, Open House Chicago, which grants attendees exclusive behind-the-scenes access to 200 of Chicago’s most unique buildings for one-day-only. And because The National — a 20-story restoration of a historic 1907 Daniel Burnham-designed building and Revival Food Hall’s home building— is one of the few Loop locations selected to participate in this year’s fest, RFH makes an excellent pit stop for hungry (and, let’s face it, thirsty) architecture aficionados exploring Chicago’s structural treasures.
Saturday, October 14, 11- 4PM, Free Admission
