A word from Little Market Brasserie
Little Market Brasserie is influenced most by French Brasserie classics, yet using ingredients and flavors from different parts of the world. Little Market Brasserie is located at the world famous Talbott Hotel, in the heart of Chicago’s popular Gold Coast neighborhood. Offering a diverse, yet approachable menu with hearty American dishes, European inspirations, and a distinctive design, Little Market Brasserie melts old and new into a vibrant urban setting.
Little Market Brasserie is a comfortable alternative to the usual downtown Chicago scene and offers a moderately priced menu with a focus on simple dishes. The restaurant's interior will showcase elements of a classic brasserie while adding modern touches that can be seen in white and black tiles, large sized antique mirrors, and vintage elements, all in a casual, communal style dining room.

Diner Reviews
  • "Came here for a graduation dinner with 9 people. The service was good and the drinks were decent, but the food was fair at best and the portions were extremely small for the price we payed. I would strongly suggest to avoid the grilled butternut squash...it was underdone and under seasoned. The sea bass was insanely small for the price. I would not go back here again unless it was for drinks or someone else asked me to come for a special occasion."

  • "Food took a very long time to come. Should have offered a free drink or dessert. And, the place was virtually empty. It is in my neighborhood but will twice about going back and/or recommending it."

  • "Two complaints. We had made a reservation and the restaurant was about 40% full, yet the hostess seated us at the closest table to the kitchen. I thought that it was a bad decision but didn't say anything at the time. It was noisy and there was alot of traffic in and out. I wondered why she had seated us there. Not impressed with the hostess. Also, you have to go into the hotel to use the restroom and it is down a flight of stairs. Not a problem for me, but it was for my husband. There is an elevator, and also a restroom on the same floor as the restaurant, but it was made clear that it was for hotel guests, not restaurant patrons. They were "snooty" to say the least. I enjoyed the food, and our waiter was great, but I won't go back."

  • "The experience on Valentine's day was average. The food was delicious and well prepared but the service and wine pairing were misleading. I hope next time to have a more clearly stated menu and what is detailed in the wine pairing before shelling out an additional $30 a person, but perhaps that was my fault."

  • "For $14.50, one can get the grilled cheese of the day. My $19 lobster salad was served in a bowl the size usually reserved for a side of sauce. Terribly bad value."

  • "We tried the Little Market Brasserie during Chicago Restaurant Week and ordered from the special fixed price menu. We each had a different salad which was a huge helping...plenty for a lunch meal itself. Nice elements on each, but the wedge was too big and dense and the bacon topping didn't taste like real bacon. My beet salad was very tasty, but for contrast I'd have preferred red beets with the orange and goat cheese instead of the yellow beets. My oxtail ravioli was delicious if just a little dry. My partner's fish was wonderful. Desserts were the right size and a lovely finish. Some minor flaws ergo the 4 stars, but a fine meal nonetheless. We would go back."

  • "Where to begin? From the minute my group and I sat down we were blown away. Our server and the wait staff were super attentive and made plenty of suggestions and recommendations for us. Since we came for Restaurant Week our server went through the menu and detailed each item, and made some suggestions. The food was outstanding, and the portion sizes were incredible. I've never left a restaurant so stuffed and sated. Everyone in my group loved their food and their drinks, and by the time dessert came around all of us were in a food coma. The restaurant is actually part of a hotel, but when we dined there was hardly anyone in the restaurant, which was nice. I can't say enough about this place. I will definitely be returning!"

  • "I went with 3 other people for restaurant week. The menu was great. I arrived first, which the waiter told me about the old fashioned Thursday specials. Fantastic!! I ordered one. And once my 3 friends arrived, two of them also did. It was nice to have a few choices of such a classic cocktail. Our server Tim was great! He was funny and informative. We truly enjoyed his service and the whole experience. The food was awesome! Especially the poutine fries (spelling mistake??). We also all raved about the dessert, sundae type with a cookie and cake of come sort. Sooooo yummy!! Thanks Tim for giving us a great 1st experience! We will definitely be back,"

  • "We each got different items on the Restaurant week menu. The pumpkin tart, the squash soup, the gnocchi and the white fish were all very good. The dessert, however, was a complete disappointment. The service is very attentive and the ambience is nice. This is a great restaurant for an evening out as long as you are willing to have dessert somewhere else."

  • "I went for lunch and I was not impressed with the lunch menu. They have a lot of brunch items, but if you want lunch the menu does not include much. I have also been for dinner and the food was exceptional! I will be back for brunch and dinner for sure, but like I said the lunch menu was very selective!"

  • "It was a frigid January day when my wife and I went to Little Market Brasserie to celebrate my birthday. We thawed out over savory deviled eggs and a lovely squash soup accompanied by a nicely matched bottle of cabernet sauvignon, suggested by our server. The main courses were also very well done: braised beef short rib, which I have ordered each time I've dined here and pan-seared whitefish which was a recommendation from our server. For dessert, out of several appealing choices, we went with a creme caramel that closed things out nicely. We had made a reservation, but for those that didn't, there was no waiting for a table either. No doubt the Arctic weather put a damper on weekday diners. Frigid or not we look forward to our next visit."

  • "Food & Service were very good and kitchen was able to accomodate special request. Went early on Sunday evening and place was quiet but that was due to time & weather and have seen it busy at other times--especially in summer. Will add this to the list of great neighborhood locations!"

  • "The food is always delicious and the atmosphere is very cozy. The staff is very accomodating; for example, we came after the breakfast menu was finished, but the chef was kind enough to still allow us to order from the breakfast menu."

  • "Little Market Brasserie is a well kept secret for the locals that live near north in Chicago. The menu offers lots of choices for breakfast and lunch. The food is nicely served with ample portions, and excellent taste. It is funny when you've walked by a restaurant many times, but never had an urge to go in. This place is worth trying if you are downtown shopping at the 900 building or along Rush Street. We will definitely be back."

  • "My husband and I took a chance and tried a new restaurant for our Christmas dinner. We went to Liitle Market for a early dining reservation (5:30pm). It was not very crowded at this time which provided for some more personalized attention and quieter ambiance. We both ordered the Pre-Fixe menu that included three courses... Deviled Egg starter, Prime Rib with thumbellina carrots and potatoe purée for the main course, and sugar creme pie for dessert. Was told by the waiter it was the Pastry Chef's grandmothers recipe. The pie was the highlight of the meal for me. I would highly recommend LM Brasserie for a nice casual, classy restaurant with excellent food and service."

  • "LMB is in the Talbott Hotel at Rush and Delaware. A perfect spot anytime of year and perfect for the holidays. We started with a bottle of rose'. We were a party of four and sat at the bar enjoying the night and each other. We're restaurant goers enjoying every establishment in town including Lula, Avec, La Sirena and many others. The staff was charming, knowledgeable and delightful. We requested a table in the bar area and promptly order the deviled eggs (to die for!) and the squash soup. In addition we had the grilled cheese and the white fish for our entree's. You have to have the grilled cheese and the fries might just be a winner for best in town. LMB would be a fabulous place for lunch, brunch or just stopping in for a toddy!"

  • "Altho a previous experience for dinner suggested that this place was more than just another hotel restaurant, & since location & time constraints were our primary motive for a quick breakfast for holiday guests, we decided to go to the Brasserie for brunch. The experience was mixed….the french toast was pretty ordinary, not even a little cinnamon & pinch of salt.The accompanying 'vanilla cream' was tasteless & the maple syrup I suspect came from Aunt Jamima. The vege omelet pleased my wife & there were too many french fries for good health on another. But, the place was quiet, coffee cups were kept full, & service was quite professional; I would grade the whole experience as 'nothing special' with little to encourage another visit."
    Dined on 12/1/2013
  • "Little Market isn't bad, it's just mediocre. We opted for the 4 course prix fixe menu. For the first course we only got one plate of turkey crostini while the table across from us got a plate each. Course 2 was actually the entrees, one duck breast and one roasted turkey. Course 3 is actually just side orders of mashed potatoes or candied sweet potatoes. The mashed potatoes came out on time but the sweet potatoes took 10 more minutes. The turkey was dry but the duck was average. The sweet potatoes came with silly marshmallows that reminded me of an awful family dinner. Thankfully the bourbon pecan pie was amazing & possibly the best pecan pie I've ever had. There were other issues as well so we felt like we should have gone to David Burke's"

  • "Very nice atmosphere and service (although a little too chummy - "hello, my name is Chris and I'll be taking care of you"). The place is quite pleasant to sit in. The food at our one-time, 2-person visit (admittedly tiny sample size) was simply mediocre, skewing toward bad. Chorizo omelette was overcooked and had no discernible chorizo. Almond croissant tough save for gobs of filling that seemed like older butter but was supposed to be almond, I think. On plus side, kept it chewable. I was drawn to somewhat quirky French/Mexican menu - that might actually be the problem, in retrospect."

  • "good food, nice space, friendly service. the menu looked great and would come back to try more of it, however for the price ($100 meal) I've had better experiences elsewhere, in nicer atmospheres and excellent food & service. not that any of this was bad, it just is all relative. Hopefully they can bring it up to the level of a Dillman's for example."

  • "Bright room, great casual vibe, nice cocktails make this a great brunch spot. We were there at noon on a Saturday and the atmosphere was great. Live music was a good touch. I had the grilled cheese with bacon, sriracha and avocado and it was delicious. Cool enough for a date or group of friends, but also laid. Back enough I wouldn't hesitate to bring my 8 year old."

  • "The menu was surprisingly limited. At 8:30 on a Saturday night they were already out of the special. The waiter was distracted by two men at another table. Apparently they were far more interesting and important than me! No wonder I was able to get a table there so easily!!"

  • "Wasn't a fan of my last experience. We went for Sunday brunch with a group of 5 people. The eggs were just OK. The bacon was so greasy and soft, as if it wasn't cooked. The frittata that our friend ordered was premade, I guess. She wanted to add more veggies, but the server said he can only put on the side. The burger is pretty awesome...so are the fries. Order a drink from the bar...they are very well made. Would come back for cocktails...not for brunch though."

  • "Myself and three friends enjoyed a great dinner at Little Market on Friday evening (reservation was for 6:45). I am often looking for an easy and delicious restaurant for dinner in this area and am so thrilled to have found Little Market. The food was outstanding, especially the risotto small plate and the filet oscar. We ordered it medium and it came out pretty rare, but the manager and server were very attentive regarding the issue. While I was surprised they took the plate and simply cooked the meat a bit longer (it had some sort of a creamy - not Bearnaise - sauce and crab on top, which they must have scooped off to cook meat longer and then put back on to re-serve it to us), it tasted wonderful. Very pleasant evening - will go back."

  • "Some dishes were excellent - mashroms on toast, the beet salad, the vegi. dish Others - Turbot, pasta with shrimp - were very disapointing. Friendly waiter but the dishes were served at random and out of planned order. Still oppertunity to improve"

  • "We figured a restaurant in an upscale (albeit perhaps slightly fading) hotel wouldn't be anything remarkable...but we were surprised at the diverse menu and the excellent food delivered by the kitchen at reasonable prices. The bread was delicious, the salads were fresh and perked up with some interesting ingredients, and the entrees (great hamburger and fish dishes) were just excellent. It's hard to see why this place was relatively empty one recent evening while just a few blocks away some overpriced and mediocre joints on State and Rush Streets were overflowing. Go here instead!"

  • "We love this restaurant and send Many customers here because of it. The food and service makes this restaurant worth coming back over and over. On a fabulous tree lined street a block off of Michigan ave. Michael and Fiona are always right there to take care of you. The Hostesses always have the perfect place to seat you and the ambiance is very well done. Thank you for being so close to my home and sooooo yummy."
