When we were chatting with Ryan Poli a couple of weeks ago we were told that mid-December, ie right about now, was the opening date for Little Market Brasserie, the new Mercadito Group brasserie-inspired place in the Talbott Hotel, 10 E. Delaware. Then we heard that it was pushed back to January 18. And now we hear that it’s opening tonight! What gives? Well, January 18 remains the official opening. But they’re opening tonight with limited reservations (312-640-8141). So you can be the first on your block, of course usual caveats for soft openings and brand new places apply, but we feel pretty sure these guys knows what they’re doing. Watch for menus and more about this opening as it gets closer to, uh, opening opening.
