Tour the Design Trends

Brendan Sodikoff’s mini food hall caters to River North residents and office workers with a walk-up window offering three of the restaurateur’s greatest successes in one place: Doughnut Vault doughnuts, the burger from Bucktown’s Small Cheval (nearly identical to the famed burgers at the West Loop’s Au Cheval) and a revival of the pastrami sandwiches once served at the now defunct Dillman’s deli. Inside, there is an elaborate salad and hot food bar, coffee bar, communal work environment and lounge area complete with a flat screen TV, chess and board games, and even a putting green. Checkered floors, leather sofas, vinyl chairs and vintage lamps create a diner-meets-rec-room feel.
