Neighborhood Spotlight: West Loop Favorite BomboBar to Expand into Old Town

  |     |   Lifestyle

It’s fresh. It’s vibrant. And, best of all, now there will be another place in Chicago to devour a bomboloni

Old Town is about to get a little sweeter as DineAmic’s BomboBar will open a second location in spring 2019.

The original shop functions under the guidance of Top Chef alum Fabio Viviani, a fortuitous chef that has revolutionized the dessert industry.

BomboBar initially introduced dessert aficionados and more specifically doughnut fans to a new type of doughnut known as the bomboloni.

“Our bomboloni dough is unique because of its texture that can be used in two ways,” says Principal and Partner of DineAmic, Lucas Stoioff. “The dough can be utilized for dishes either savory or sweet, similar to the way a croissant can be used for both a sandwich or a pastry.”

Always a rotating menu, BomboBar not only sells doughnuts but also additional confectionary items, housemade gelato and savory sandwiches.

Following four years of success in the West Loop, one of Chicago’s most popular doughnut and sandwich destinations will expand to the heart of Old Town.

Located at 1529 North Wells Street; taking over the former Buzz Bait Taqueria space, the 1,500-square-foot eatery will bring BomboBar’s famous Bomboloni, BomboBurgers, over-the-top Hotter Chocolates, and gelato to the neighborhood.

Unlike its West Loop counterpart, which only has outdoor seating, BomboBar Old Town will feature 30-indoor seats and 20-seats on the outdoor patio. Having more indoor space will make the Old Town location more conducive to group dining, off-site workspace snacking and cocktailing with boozy desserts, beer and wine.

“BomboBar West Loop is only a 100-square-foot space used for preparing menu items that are served out of a walk-up window on Green Street,” says Principal and Partner of DineAmic, David Rekhson. “Our larger Old Town location will be more comfortable for our guests and will make it easier for them to enjoy our savory menu items.”

The savory items will include BomboBar’s fan favorite breakfast sandwich, the BomboBrekky and the BomboBurger, as well as its fried chicken sandwich, the BomboBird, and its vegetarian option the BomboCado.

The Old Town space will be completely renovated with a warm, rustic look and feel similar to the West Loop location. A nod to the character of the neighborhood, the aesthetic of the space will channel a coffeehouse vibe with comfortable seating options.
