What they say:
Following the success of their first five outposts, Chicago Rib Shack is taking over Copita Del Mercado's old site in Aldgate East. The American style restaurant will feature all the favourite dishes seen in other restaurants, such as their slow-cooked ribs smoked over applewood, and the huge burgers topped with pulled pork and cheddar cheese. There will also be a selection of cocktails and hard shakes and the restaurant will have space for 125 covers.
What we say:
Close to Shoreditch and in East London, it's only a matter of time before Aldgate East gets the 'cool place to hang out' stamp, and savvy restaurateurs are making their mark now. With four venues in London and one in Leeds, Chicago Rib Shack are opening their sixth restaurant in this up and coming area, promising their delicious brand of American style ribs and burgers. While a lot of information is being kept under wraps, we think this London eatery is a great addition to the area, offering everyone from city workers to residents a place for big-style dinners.
