Plantx Life adds Kitchen 17 to XMarket Vegan Food Hall

2023-09-12 16:39 ET - News Release

Mr. Lorne Rapkin reports


Plantx Life Inc. will add Kitchen 17, a 100-per-cent-vegan restaurant that specializes in made-from-scratch comfort food, to the initial food lineup at the XMarket Vegan Food Hall as one of its six initial culinary concepts when the Midwest's largest food hall officially opens to the public on Sept. 14, 2023.

Kitchen 17 is a fully vegan Chicago restaurant specializing in comfort food with house-made meats, cheeses, desserts and a full bar. Kitchen 17 has built a loyal customer base, largely due to the success of its most popular dish, its 100-per-cent-vegan deep-dish pizza, which is now frozen and shipped nationwide.

"No food hall would be complete without pizza, and Kitchen 17 is the perfect choice, especially in Chicago, the home of deep-dish pizza," said Plantx chief executive officer Lorne Rapkin. "Patrons will visit the Plantx Food Hall and Kitchen 17 for deep-dish pizza if they are vegans or not. It's that delicious. And we are certain that Kitchen 17 will be a significant draw to our innovative and diverse dining experience."

The vegan deep-dish stalwart will join the food hall with its limited-menu concept, Station 17-B: A Kitchen 17 Satellite, offering pan-style pizza by the slice as well as personal-sized versions of its iconic deep-dish pizzas, seitan wings and a wide range of house-made desserts.

"Our initial lineup of six unique and diverse restaurants provides something for everyone, with any preference, at any age, from vegetarians to vegans to people who just love great food," added Mr. Rapkin.

"Our mission is to create great food without qualifications that just happens to be 100 per cent vegan," commented Kitchen 17 co-owner Jennie Plasterer. "We are excited to join up with XMarket Vegan Food Hall to send cool vegan food into orbit at Station 17-B; we can't wait to pay homage to our space overlords with some new food and old favourites fit for humans and extraterrestrials alike."

Kitchen 17's other co-owner Joe Mertz continued: "We are excited to launch Station 17-B at XMarket; they were one of the first vendors to carry our grocery products as we began expanding outside of Chicago. Our space station will be right at home with the exciting lineup of vendors Plantx has brought on board to open this food hall."
