XMarket Food Hall
Three things you’ll find in the Midwest: cold winters, people who say “ope,” and now, the largest vegan food hall in the US. Enter XMarket in Uptown. The massive space has seven vendors, a coffee shop, a spacious bar, and enough tables to host a city-wide middle school chess tournament. And the wide variety of food stalls means there’s something for everyone—from smoky mushroom tacos at El Hongo Magico, to juicy Italian “beef” from Chicago Not Dogs, to savory eggplant “unagi” nigiri from Bloom Sushi. Plus, with a full grocery section, you can also pick a few things up if you’re feeling inspired to try out any new recipes after eating here.
