Gioia Ristorante and Pastificio is one of the newest restaurants opening on Restaurant Row in the West Loop at 1133 W. Randolph St.
Gioia will serve 12 to 15 pastas made fresh daily, featuring both modern, innovative dishes as well as classic regional favorites. The chef for Gioia, Federico Comacchio, got his “chops” at Michelin Starred restaurant, Ristorante Sadler in Milan, as well as the time he spent as the executive chef at Phil Stefani’s Coco Pazzo and 437 Rush. According to a spokesperson for Gioia, Italian native, Comacchio has been visiting Italy regularly and wants to serve what he’s learned back home.
Gioia was slated to open its doors in spring of 2020, but for obvious reasons, that didn’t happen. Signage on their storefront says they expect to open in the coming weeks. Given how great their menu sounds, we can only hope it’s not much longer!
Randolph Street is known locally and internationally for its high density of top notch restaurants. From Michelin Starred culinary experiences to “the best burger ever”, you can find it all on Randolph Street.

Chef Curtis Duffy is a Michelin three starred Chicago chef known for Randolph Street’s ‘Grace’, which closed its doors in 2017. After three years in the works, Duffy and his business partner, Michael Muser, opened their new Fulton Market restaurant, Ever, in July. However, due to COVID-19 restrictions and supply chain obstacles, Ever has pivoted into a new temporary concept called ‘Reve Burger’.
Ever started as a high end, contemporary concept with an 8-10 course tasting menu (starting at $285 per person) featuring seafood, seasonal vegetables, nuts, meats, seeds, and grains. The original menu consisted of ingredients like squab with guajillo, raspberry, and sorrel, hoja santa (also known as “root beer leaf”), and an earthy-looking wagyu beef with sunchoke, orange, and tat soi. However, COVID has made sourcing many of these ingredients much more difficult than usual. Between these supply chain obstacles and COVID-19 indoor dining restrictions, the restaurant’s offerings have changed considerably for the time being.
Ever’s Fulton Market space is currently being used for Reve, Duffy and Muser’s carryout concept. In addition to being “Ever” spelled backward, “Reve” also means “dream” in French. Reve offers gourmet burgers and American fare for delivery and pick up. The standard “Reve burger” consists of two, four-ounce beef patties, a few slices of American cheese, plus Vienna dill pickles, and special sauce between a brioche bun from Highland Baking Co, served with shoestring fries that supposedly get crunchier after they’re reheated. Reve chef du cuisine, Jason Selk, got his chops working at Culver’s in Wisconsin. Selk hopes eating the delicious burgers from Reve will invoke a feeling of nostalgia for the consumer.
Be sure to try Reve burger while it’s here for a limited time!
