Aster Hall is the latest food hall to open in Chicago, and it is so beautiful I am ready to move in!
Seriously though, can they leave that wreath up year round?? And how amazing is that gingerbread sky scraper. I clearly am not ready for the holidays to be over.
I love food halls because a) they always offer a wide variety of food options at a reasonable price point b) the Chicago food halls only team up with the best restaurants so you know the food is going to be good c) I get to pretend like I am back in Europe where markets of this type are not a new fad but indeed something that has been around for years.
Aster Hall might be my favorite because it is beautiful, and it is also home to The Chocolate Bar pictured above, which has the most amazing selection of French pastries that literally made my heart swoon. I have a knack for tracking down delicious french pastries and I am not ashamed of that.
Even though January historically is my favorite month to hibernate at home, this spot is worth the trip out into the cold! Will travel for delicious food!
