Dr. Murphy’s Food Hall is coming to the Illinois Medical District!

Located within the landmarked Old Cook County Hospital building currently undergoing a transformative $150 million renovation, part of a broader $1 billion development, Dr. Murphy’s Food Hall will feature ten chef-driven vendors as well as a vibrant bar and lounge.

Culinary offerings will be curated by award-winning chef, restaurateur, TV personality and food hall veteran, Akhtar Nawab. A Kentucky-bred chef of Indian heritage, Nawab is chef/owner of innovative Mexican restaurants Alta Calidad in New York and Otra Vez in New Orleans, fast-casual taqueria ACTQ, and advisor at Prather’s on the Alley in Washington, DC.
