One Eleven Food Hall
When the One Eleven Food Hall opened in 2019 at the 111th Street Gateway Retail Center, it represented the first food-centered retail development to open in the community in at least 30 years. Today the One Eleven Food Hall with its prime location just off the Bishop Ford expressway and on the path to the National Monument site is a magnet for great local food.
The Potbelly Sandwich Shop and drive-thru was the first restaurant to open in the 111th Street Gateway Retail Center in 2018. It was later joined by three restaurants owned by local entrepreneurs inside the One Eleven Food Hall – Lexington Betty Smokehouse, Majani Soulful Vegan Cuisine, and AndySunflower Café. Chicago’s first Food Hall located south of Chinatown offers entrepreneurs a unique opportunity to launch a larger scale food business with minimal expenses.
All three restaurants inside the food hall offer curbside pick-up and carry-out.
