Food Network Star Chad Rosenthal Expands Restaurant Concept to Chicago
Today, Roosevelt Collection Shops announced that a new restaurant will be joining the center in early 2020. The Lucky Well is looking to bring the environment of its Ambler, Penn. location to the South Loop. Chef Chad Rosenthal is excited to introduce his expanding Pennsylvania concept to Chicagoans.
Like in Ambler, the Roosevelt Collection location will focus on barbecue, whiskey and classic craft cocktails, and a live blues atmosphere. While researching the city, Rosenthal visited a number of local barbecue joints and blues stages.
“It has been so exciting to work with Chef Chad on bringing this concept to Chicago,” says Shannon Ridgeway, General Manager of Roosevelt Collection Shops. “We’re thrilled to add another growing small business to Roosevelt Collection and bring this new experience to our South Loop neighbors and Chicago locals.”
Every weekend, in addition to live blues music, the kitchen will be cooking up specialty dishes such as Chef’s dry-aged steaks, Farmer’s Market salads, unique spins on fried catfish, and more. Guests interested in options besides The Lucky Well’s Memphis dry-rub ribs will have other choices to choose from.
In keeping with Philly-born Rosenthal’s love of his hometown, the restaurant will include design elements from old churches, schools, and other vintage items acquired through a partnership with Philadelphia Salvage Company. Rosenthal and Roosevelt Collection are working together to create a brand-new expanded space for this concept.
The Lucky Well was founded in 2012 by Food Network Star and restaurateur, Chad Rosenthal, and Philly BBQ pioneer, Chris McHugh.
