The Chi Town Eatery team was created to provide a casual all day gourmet eatery experience, in an upscale business area of Chicago. Focusing on upscale comfort food with breakfast offerings all day; Chi Town Eatery utilized bold and unique flavor combinations to provide their patrons with continuous offerings.
