Part of Gibsons Restaurant Group

José Andrés’ ThinkFoodGroup, in partnership with Chicago’s Gibsons Restaurant Group, brings to life Bazaar Meat, Bar Mar, & Café by the River in the new Bank of America Tower at 110 N. Wacker. This joint venture represents an unprecedented pairing of Gibsons Restaurant Group’s Lombardo family with the two-Michelin star Chef Andrés, combining the culinary ingenuity of his ThinkFoodGroup with the operational expertise of the Gibsons team. TFG and GRG are collaborating to bring diners an unmatched level of hospitality and an authentic culinary experience.

Bazaar Meat is a wild and wonderful celebration of the carnivorous, in all its forms. Guests at Bazaar Meat are invited to begin their evening with cocktails at Bar Mar and then progress upstairs to the extraordinary dining room, which takes open kitchens to the next level —from the dramatic fire kitchen with wood grills and rotisseries to the raw bars for ceviches, carpaccios and tartares.
