Revival Food Hall

Revival Food Hall is a food lover’s “dream team” food court. This place is massive, it’s busy, the selections are varied and it could take me weeks, maybe months to try everything.

If I worked nearby, I would eat lunch here a lot. But when dining with a group, these kind of places (like Chicago French Market and Shake Shack) stress me out so I prefer to go alone. There’s nothing like hovering over a table like a hawk while someone tries to finish their fries or trying to text your party and find everyone while holding a food tray. Food Life is nuts at lunch but they have the right idea in that you get your table first and then split up to get your food.

Some lines at Revival Food Hall are considerably longer than others and it’s definitely challenging to find a table without holding your tray for at least a little while. And it’s probably next to impossible to try several things from different places unless you have a plan and willing participants or go at 2 p.m. or don’t mind your food getting cold while you go to one place to the next.

I just complained for the last two paragraphs, but really, I loved this place.

We arrived at 12:45pm and it was still pretty crowded. We split up and 3 got the food and 1 looked for a table.

The kids and I have reached that part in our relationship where they laugh. I say “What?” and they laugh some more.
