Alinea creators coming to Fulton Market with Next Restaurant and The Aviary!

Posted by ChicagoismynewBlog! on July 29, 2010

Brought to me by the weekly Fulton River District Association bulletin, the creators of the world-famous restaurant, Alinea, are making their presence known in the Fulton Market.  Currently under construction, two new businesses are taking shape at 953-955 W. Fulton Market.  

Next Restaurant will explore world cuisine and instead of taking reservations, your booking will be made more like a theater or a sporting event where your tickets will be fully inclusive of all charges, including dining service.  Obviously, ticket prices will depend on the time and day of your visit. 

The Aviary won’t technically be defined as a bar or a lounge, really.  They’ll have chefs producing the drinks so not only will they have the classic cocktails, but you can bet they’ll have some amazing and beautiful cocktails to compliment the menu at Next Restaurant

Both Next Restaurant and The Aviary are slated to open later this year.

Mysterious and stalled development in Fulton Market.

Posted by ChicagoismynewBlog! on May 15, 2010

Does anyone know what this development was supposed to be?  It’s located at Ada and Fulton Streets and has been in its current state for a long time.  I took a look at an aerial map and it looks like a huge parking garage but being in that area, why the hell would someone need or build a four-story parking garage?
