BOMBOBAR

Since 2015, BomboBar has been a staple in Chicago’s West Loop – Fulton Market neighborhood. The quaint walk-up window started as DineAmic Hospitality principals David Rekhson and Lucas Stoioff’s playful idea stemming from Top Chef Fan Favorite and Executive Chef Fabio Viviani’s famous bomboloni.
