Switching Stations

Lunch in style, on site

Switching Stations features a variety of top Chicago restaurants every day. Its name is an allusion to the train tracks visible from the building’s higher floors: eight tracks merge into three at switching stations visible just above Polk St. It’s also a not-so-subtle reference to how the food hall operates. Rotating local restaurants pop up in the stations throughout the food hall to offer a mix of authentic cuisine.

7:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.

7:00 a.m.–10:00 a.m.
