Assemble’s new location at 1720 W Division Street in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood opens in February. We covered reasons to work in Wicker Park in our blog post in November. One of the reasons is the fantastic food options in the neighborhood. Assemble Wicker Park is within walking distance of many diverse restaurants. Below are some of our favorite spots for lunch in the neighborhood.
Foxtrot is anchoring our new Wicker Park location. Foxtrot is a curated convenience store. One of the great things about Foxtrot, especially for Assemble members, is that they deliver. Sure, you could run downstairs and pick up a sandwich or soup at their store. If you’re in the middle of a project or on a conference call, you may just want to hop on their web site (www.foxtrotco.com) and place a quick lunch order. It’ll show up in under an hour.
This popular breakfast and lunch spot recently opened about a block west of Assemble Wicker Park. Their menu features some great burger, sandwich, soup and salad options. They have an extensive breakfast menu as well.
Yolk is located at 1819 W Division Street. Check out their menu and more at www.eatyolk.com.
If you’re in the mood for barbecue, Smoke Daddy is your place. This longtime Wicker Park staple offers ribs, chicken, pulled pork and more. Smoke Daddy expanded a few years ago and is now more than twice as large as it used to be.

If you need your pizza fix, Pizza Metro is an excellent option. They offer authentic Roman square pizza. Their menu includes many specialty pizzas, including prosciutto and arugula pizza, capriccios (artichokes, ham and black olives) pizza and our favorite, potato and rosemary. Salads, paninis, pasta, soups and entrees are also available.
