Chicago-based market and deli chain The Goddess and Grocer plans to open a fifth store this summer at 911 W. Randolph St. in the West Loop, the company announced Friday.
“I am excited to open in the West Loop as that is where I live now, and a two-block walk to work is a dream,” The Goddess and Grocer owner Debbie Sharpe said in a news release. “When I lived in Bucktown, I opened the first Goddess there because I wanted a neighborhood place, and now that the West Loop is my neighborhood, I had no choice!”
The new space will incorporate features such as a large dog-friendly patio space with street and sidewalk seating for up to 60 diners, as well as counter seating overlooking the sidewalk and floor-to-ceiling windows.
According to the company, the menu will include "long-time favorites" in addition to dishes from a not-yet-named chef who will collaborate with Sharpe. Among the anticipated menu items are house-made desserts, locally made pastries, made-to-order breakfasts, sandwiches, kombucha and draft coffee.
The Goddess and Grocer has four other locations in Bucktown, River North, Gold Coast and O'Hare International Airport.
