Best Fulton Market Chicago RestaurantsIf you haven't spent much time around the Fulton Market neighborhood lately, prepared to be pleasantly surprised the next time you take a stroll down one of the city’s fastest developing thoroughfares.

Back in early February, the city of Chicago announced a new streetscape project that aimed to make the newly transformed Fulton Market area more pedestrian friendly, and although the first phase of the project isn’t expected to be completed before early 2018, significant progress has already been made. Wider sidewalks that allow for plenty of outdoor dining, the gateway sign that was added back in 2015, and a plethora of new restaurants and cafes now combine to make Fulton Market one of the hottest restaurant hubs in the city, which is fitting given it’s

Restaurant Row on Randolph StreetThe vibrant strip of Randolph Street between Halsted and Ogden Avenue isn’t dubbed Restaurant Row for nothing. Lined with some of Chicago’s best eateries, the restaurant scene in this part of the West Loop neighborhood is as equally diverse as it is delicious. It’s because of the neighborhood’s close proximity to three major expressways, the United Center, Chicago’s main business district in The Loop, and of course the area’s old-time industrial and urban theme that makes Restaurant Row in the downtown West Loop so unique, desirable, and downright cool.
