WEST LOOP | RANDOLPH STREET
This near west side neighborhood is considered one of the trendiest and most fun Restaurant Row neighborhoods. Historically, the area housed wholesale produce, meat merchants, and restaurant supply houses. The stalls and streets teemed around the clock with food service buyers and chefs purchasing their goods and equipment for the next meal. In the past decade, most of the business has moved near to the airport, leaving behind attractive buildings, cobblestone side streets, and a tradition of fine and fresh food.
