Big City Chicken to Open Thursday at Navy Pier

NAVY PIER — Big City Chicken is ready to add another feather to Navy Pier's cap.

The casual fried chicken restaurant from Lettuce Entertain You will open Thursday at the pier's new food court, joining the Chicago restaurant group's Big Bowl Chinese Express and Frankie's Pizza by the Slice.  A chicken sandwich, available for $5.99.

Big City Chicken, a new Lettuce concept, will serve fare including fried chicken, cheese fries and orange soda floats. The menu was developed by M Burger chef Tim Hockett. 

Navy Pier is adding new restaurants as part of a massive redevelopment before the tourist attraction's centennial next year. Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced Tuesday that Navy Pier will get a new Ferris wheel in time for the 2016 celebration.
