Taking Shared Space To New Heights

By now you may have heard of the shared kitchen space concept. Foodies and chef-preneurs rent space in commercial kitchens so they can practice their culinary wizardry outside of the confines of studio-sized kitchens. Using shared space is how Sugar Bliss’ Teresa Ging got her start, for example.

Logan Square Kitchen expands on this concept to include an event space, and the whole place is certifiably green – LEED Gold certified. Since opening in October of 2009 they’ve hosted several unique events, including pastry markets and Top Chef Stephanie Izard‘s Wandering Goat dinners. This weekend they’re hosting Chicago’s first pop-up restaurant, an event sure to stand out in the roster of food-related things to do in Chicago.

Chefs Jason Hammel and Bill Kim will be working side-by-side to create festival food fit for gourmets at prices fit for families. Their menus are designed to make it easy to pop in and out during the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival, which is happening right outside the space. Here’s what they’ll be serving:
