Decent Beef

You didn’t think we’d open Time Out Market Chicago without an Italian beef, did you? The iconic delicacy is a deliciously messy rite of passage for locals and out-of-towners alike. At Decent Beef, chef Kevin Hickey (The Duck Inn) elevates the handheld classic with juicy shaved prime rib, a rich beef jus, hot giardiniera and sweet peppers—all tucked inside a crusty roll. Pro tip: Vegans and vegetarians will love Hickey’s ingenious Beet Street sammie, which subs meat for delicately sliced roasted beets and umami jus. Save yourself the trip and grab some napkins now.
