Marshall’s Landing, at the top of the grand staircase in Merchandise Mart, opened earlier in June, according to a statement from J.C. Anderson.

The 12,000-square-foot cafe, bar and lounge was named after Marshal Field, the founder of Merchandise Mart. The space will be operated by DMK Restaurants and is open daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., according to the statement.

J.C. Anderson completed the renovation which features a lounge with open tables, leather and velvet banquet seating along the windows, a private dining facility with a large rolling door made of walnut and blackened steel, two modern kitchens equipped with a beer cooler, prep cooler, storage and a coffee service and pastry counter.

Additional features include a 50-foot long tilted glass mirror framed with brass, a walnut and brass bar with 118 overhead light fixtures, and USB and electrical outlets near communal seating.

Finishes for the project include brick veneer wall and linen wall coverings, terrazzo and ceramic flooring, and a substantial amount of intricate millwork.
