The website’s live for the multi-vendor Chicago French Market (the mega-food emporium opening inside Ogilvy’s Metra Market ), and among the amassed foodsellers we are particularly jazzed to note Jeroen Hasenbos’s Frietkoten, a Belgian frites shop modeled after the “fry shacks” of Amsterdam. Hasenbos will serve up hand-cut fries with a dizzying array of twenty different dipping sauces, plus a selection of Belgian and Dutch beers to wash it all down. Yes. [Frietkoten/French Market]
