A Chicago-based upscale breakfast restaurant is coming to CityWay.

Yolk has signed a lease to occupy 4,410 square feet in the downtown mixed-use development at Delaware and South streets, and is expected to open in the summer.

Owner Taki Kastanis opened his first Yolk in Chicago in 2006 and now has four locations in the Windy City.

The CityWay location will be Yolk’s first outside of Chicago.

At CityWay, developed by Indianapolis-based Buckingham Cos., Yolk joins Cerulean, Qdoba and Orange Leaf as food-related retail tenants.

Yolk will occupy space just east of The Alexander hotel, with its storefront facing south toward the Eli Lilly and Co. campus.

The restaurant will be open from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays and from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekends.

Yolk’s menu includes five-egg omelets, eggs benedict, and specialty skillets and frittatas, in addition to a variety of pancakes and waffles.

  • Market Table?
    What does this mean for Market Table, their existing weekend breakfast place (which is utterly exceptional and the best brunch in the city)?
  • Well...
    ... the last time I was in Market Table for Brunch, as attentive as the staff was, almost ALL of the "hot" food items we tried were warm at best and many of them were obviously past their time. So, what it will HOPEFULLY mean for Market Table is a little competition to keep them on their heels. As of my most recent visit it was good enough but FAR from the best brunch in the city.
  • Yolk
    I've been to Yolk in Chicago. The food is good but not fancy. I imagine this location will do well with the Lilly, Anthem and Farm Bureau folks who like to have breakfast meetings.
  • Add it to the list!
    2014 is off to a bang with exciting new downtown additions - add Yolk to the list! I've had Yolk several times in Chicago and have been extremely pleased. Glad to hear that this is going into the empty space at CityWay as well. The more we can beef up that area, the better.
  • Great for downtown!....
    I lived in Chicago for 1.5 years and surprisingly never heard of this place but I'm glad to see it coming to downtown! These additions are going to do well to increase attraction to the area. With that being said, at what point do communities outside of downtown get some welcomed additions? Broad Ripple is doing great and will continue to get better as long as a few people quit with their nonsensical whining about new development. But other areas such as Lawrence have plenty of space for infill. Heck, there's a large open building space for lease right off of 56th and Post Road. What needs to be done to make areas outside of downtown and Broad Ripple more attractive to development? I have an idea of what could help, but I'm not for sure if it will ever happen.

  1. I keep wondering why I keep hearing about this problem of corporations leaving America, and I never hear a reasonable proposal to lower corporate tax rates and raise personal rates on income from capital gains and dividends, especially for high earners. It is just too simple of a solution for Congress to embrace?

  3. is a disaster. SR37 already needs to be built to interstate standards between 465 and SR144. Southport Road is a mess each morning and evening.

  4. Bass Pro Shops would be good for the mall as well as a Giant Eagle Market District or a Jungle Jim's International Market Place grocery store like the one near Cincinnati Ohio.A Disney quest indoor theme park would be good.An Academy outdoor store would be good too.Indoor Circus shows and magic shows would be good as well. A casino with sports bar would be good.A Disney theater inside that shows movies and Broadway shows would work.Nashville Tennessee concert shops with indoor neon lights would be good.How about a theater that shows travel shows and theme parks. A train store would be good.How about a giant toy store with high tech video games.

  5. This development is in addition to Allpoints Midwest 5, Aitrtek, a recent FedEx and more in Plainfield. Greenwood and Brownsburg also have similar projects.
