The new Wells Street Market defies a couple of conventions. First, that a food-centered marketplace has to be cuisine centric, like Eataly, or Latinicity. Second, that it has to be on the street it’s named for since you enter Wells Street Market off of Wacker.

For all the people working in the Merchandise Market and the fifty-thousand high rises looming over Wacker and Wells, this thing is a Godsend. The restaurants are all Chicago staples and a couple of up-and-comers knocking out amazing food. And one completely brand new venture from Andrew Bannos. You can get a real taste of Chicago in a just a short stroll but the jewel in the mix, the garnish on the rim is the very thoughtful and brilliant inclusion of Flowers for Dreams.
