Chicago, IL | June 04, 2019

MB Real Estate (MBRE) announced that President Kevin Purcell recently closed a deal with Chicago-based restaurant group Goddess and the Baker at 181 West Madison. The restaurant will be located on 181 West Madison’s ground floor in a 2,271 SF space and is slated to open in the 3rd Quarter of 2019. MBRE provides leasing and management services to the Class-A office building.

Currently, Goddess and the Baker has locations in the Loop, River North, and Brookfield, Wisconsin.

“Goddess and the Baker has had tremendous success serving high quality food with an international approach and fresh, local ingredients,” said Goddess and the Baker Partner Tamar Mizrahi Stone. “We believe good food can also be fast and accessible, and we’re excited to further expand our business and our vision in Chicago’s Loop.”

Chicago’s Central Loop, or Financial District, is known for its more old-school dining options, but the arrival of trendy retailers like Goddess and the Baker is changing that.

“Chicago is increasingly known for its local, innovative restaurants that offer both great food and a unique experience,” said MBRE President Kevin Purcell. “Goddess and the Baker exemplifies that and is exactly the type of energy the Central Loop needs.”

“We’re very happy to welcome Goddess and the Baker to the building and to deliver a wonderful food, beverage, and gathering spot to our tenants and the surrounding community,” said MBRE SVP & General Manager of 181 West Madison Krystal Kurinsky. “We’re confident the restaurant will see a lot of success between their own name recognition and their new, prominent location on Madison Street.”

This marks Goddess and the Baker’s fourth storefront in Chicago.
