New Fox and Obel coming to State Street
Crain's Chicago Business: http://www.chicagobusiness.com/cgi-bi...

Both stories cover Fox and Obel's plans for a new store in the former Carson's building. The new Fox and Obel store will have 25,000 square feet at the State and Madison entrance.
The stories also report that Flat Top Grill has signed for space in the building.
What about Flat Top is it that makes it interesting? I've never been so I went to their website. I can't comment on "quick" without having experienced it myself (or knowing someone who has) and I have no idea if it's "cheap" as their website doesn't list prices. I can't say that what I've read on their website is tremendously interesting, to me, but clearly that's a subjective thing - so I'd like to hear from someone that eats there what the draw is.
I guess it's good they have something going in that location but it's a far cry from having a major department store. I do appreciate what I feel is a more convenient location for Fox & Obel.
