The West Loop has become the hot neighborhood for company HQs, and an influx of hungry office workers has spurred a lunchtime revolution around Restaurant Row, traditionally more dinner-driven. While other fast-casual spots are popping up, it’s an out-of-town import that gets our vote for best new lunch. After success on the East Coast, the Philadelphia-based Honeygrow has brought their made-to-order noodles and salads to Chicago. Highly customizable using a kiosk ordering system, a meal at Honeygrow is a delicious and refreshing midday option. Try the Chicago-exclusive Capone noodle bowl and treat yourself to their honey bar for a wholesome and satisfying dessert.
