Bob Mariano, the founder of major Chicago grocery store chain Mariano's, on Tuesday opened the first location of Dom's Kitchen and Market, a new kitchen and grocery store concept in the Lincoln Park neighborhood.
Spanning 17,800 square feet, Dom's Kitchen & Market touts "a next-generation food emporium built upon a grocery legacy and neighborhood service with a focus on the experiential love of food."
It could be the first of possibly dozens of fresh markets catering to people looking to dine and shop.
“If you look at what has happened in the years since we did Mariano’s, the customer has changed,” said Mariano. “People are looking for easy, quick, fun, poised to go and get food.”
Located at 2730 N. Halsted St., Mariano's new marketplace will feature food stations, a dining area and grocery store, according to the company.
The dining area, located in the center of the store will feature the following sections open from breakfast through dinner: The Kitchen, Charcuterie, The Brew, Wine Library, Pantry and Bakery.
