Here’s a bit of history. Named after the sound of celebratory fireworks, the original Ben Pao was open for 15 years in Chicago’s River North. Closing its doors in 2011, Ben Pao was known for serving modern Chinese cuisine.
In addition to Vong’s Thai Kitchen, Ben Pao is the latest of the signature concepts that Lettuce Entertain You has brought back to offer carryout and delivery to downtown Chicago.
Ben Pao is open for carryout and delivery, operating out of Hub 51 located at 51 W. Hubbard St. The restaurant will be open Wednesday – Thursday: 11:00 AM – 9:00 PM, Friday: 11:00 AM – 10:00 PM, Saturday – Sunday: 10:30 AM – 10:00 PM.
