OUR STORY

 
 

Located in the heart of the Loop within walking distance to Millennium Park, Forum 55 is an inspired breakfast and lunch food hall and marketplace featuring 10 fast-casual stalls from some of Chicago’s top food and beverage personalities. Under the direction of Compass Group / Eurest Division, Forum 55 provides the city an original take on the food hall experience. 

With its easy-to-use cashless digital kiosks, Forum 55 allows diners to spend more time eating and less time on ordering and waiting. In a rush? Online ordering further streamlines the process for both grab-and-go and in-house dining. Your lunch hour just got a whole lot better...

Under the direction of 2017 Illinois Restaurant Association Chairman, Food Works President and Compass Group / Eurest Division President Jim Kallas, Forum 55 provides the city with an original take on the food hall experience.  “We want to celebrate Chicago food in its multiplicity at its very best,” shared Kallas. “A food hall can be a very special opportunity to showcase the farmer, the entrepreneur and the well-loved chef all at the same time with convenience, affordability and excitement for the consumer.”  

A very special feature is the The Apron Exchange,  a “food service incubator” designed especially to provide a platform for female and minority-owned businesses that want to introduce a new product or get an idea off the ground. Forum 55 also features original programming, such as chef’s tables, purveyor meet and greets and special tastings, to position the space further as a gathering place for the larger Jeweler’s Row neighborhood daytime crowd.
