Go to the Wells Street Market for an Upscale Food Hall Experience

An easy drive from OneEleven is a destination featuring Chicago’s best chefs, artisans, and purveyors. Wells Street Market offers a unique, elevated take on the traditional food hall experience. This local gem features a full-service bar and nine fast-casual restaurants.

Pork & Mindy’s 

When friends Kevin Corsello and Jeff Mauro decided to offer creative barbecue, Pork & Mindy’s was born. Jeff is a celebrity chef best known for hosting the hit show, “The Sandwich King,” on the Food Network. Both guys are happiest while standing behind a grill or slow-smoker enjoying delicious food with family and friends. The restaurant offers a vibrant vibe. Also, it comes complete with colorful art and upbeat tunes. Sandwiches include “Carolina Pork,” “Three Big Piggies,” and “Buffalo Cauliflower.” All pair well the Chicago smoked beans and tater tots, so order them with Jeff’s famous ranch dressing. 

Dos Toros Taqueria 

The Dos Toros Taqueria was founded by two brothers. They wanted to bring a taste of the San Francisco taqueria experience to the rest of the country. The chefs make everything from scratch. Also, they take pride in using naturally-raised meats and other quality ingredients. Dos Toros is a local favorite. It offers fast service and has gained recognition from both Chicago Magazine and CBS Chicago. The menu includes carne asada tacos and pollo asado burritos. Enjoy the dishes with Mexican rice and Tecate beer. 

Fry the Coop

At Fry the Coop, Joe Fontana and his crew prepare a secret nine-step fried chicken recipe. They offer six levels of spiciness. These range from country to “Lil Insanity” spiciness levels. Also, the chicken is hand-breaded the old-fashioned way, and customers state that it’s the best they’ve ever tasted. Sides include seasoned coleslaw, fries, and macaroni salad.
