New Downtown Chicago location

Several months ago a grab and go place in the French Market in Downtown Chicago opened and closed. well, now there is another owner calling his place Bebe's Eatery. They are still selling grab and go foods all under the CRC, but the selection is much better. They now have foods from Srulie's, Sandwich Club and Emma's Bagels.
i wish them luck!

    Given that all 3 restaurants are under the same ownership, do you know if this is an extension of that operation or an independent entity?

      i'm pretty sure that the owner is the same for all four places.

        I'm hoping that means no double-markups on the food (and fresher product).

          Yes, all 4 places are now owned by Maury Aaron, whose brother publishes The Chicago Jewish News.

            I walked by yesterday and it suffers from the presentation. Nearly everything is in plastic clamshells looking fairly uniform. I wouldn't hesitate to buy something if I was stuck in the area (given the lack of alternatives) but it doesn't make me want to run back anytime soon.
