The Fat Shallot opens next week giving grilled cheese lovers an oasis in Lincoln Park. This is the first standalone restaurant for the food truck with a location inside Revival Food Hall in the Loop. The menu for the Lincoln Park location is different with appetizers like chilaquile nachos, soups, and salads.
Opening day is Thursday, September 27 at 2468 N. Clark Street where a dumpling restaurant once stood. Buffalo fried chicken, Reubens, and pulled pork sandwiches are menu highlights. The sides feature a variety of french fries including spuds with truffle aioli.
The truck’s been around for five years from the wife-and-husband team of Sarah Weitz and Sam Barron. They were one of the first food truck owners who were legally allowed to prep food in their vehicles. Barron’s experience includes stops at Everest and the Pump Room.
Read the menu below. Weitz said the first 100 customers on opening day will get free sandwiches.
