MEDICAL DISTRICT — Dr. Murphy’s Food Hall opened Monday inside the newly renovated former Cook County Hospital, bringing a dozen new food and drink options to the Illinois Medical District.
The food hall opened Monday in the hulking building at 1811 W. Harrison St. Helmed by Hospitality HQ, the 10,000-square-foot food hall features an outdoor patio, a bar and a lounge.
To comply with coronavirus regulations, the food hall offers socially-distanced and outdoor seating and a designated area for carryout.
The hall’s name is a tribute to renowned Dr. John B. Murphy, a Chicago surgeon who did pioneering abdominal work in the late 1800s and early 1900s. He studied, interned and taught at Cook County Hospital.
The food hall’s opening comes a week after Hyatt opened a dual-branded hotel at the old hospital.
