The two will open several dining options at the Chicago casino.

Wind Creek Hospitality has signed a deal with Fabio Viviani to operate Wind Creek Chicago Southland’s food and beverage outlets.

Wind Creek Chicago Southland is scheduled to open next spring. The duo will work together to set up a steakhouse, food hall and in-room dining that includes banquets.

Viviani has appeared on several seasons of Bravo’s Top Chef, as well as in his cooking show, Fabio’s Kitchen. In addition to his work as a television personality, he owns more than 50 dining locations, which include some throughout Chicago.

Acting General Manager Roger Kuehn described the collaboration as a win for both groups.

He said, "Bringing in a partner like Fabio Viviani to our Chicago Southland property is a home run for our food and beverage offerings.

“Fabio's expertise in the hospitality industry will give Wind Creek Chicago Southland an unmatched competitive edge.”

Viviani echoed similar sentiments and pointed out that this location adds to the appeal of the partnership.

He commented: "We are delighted to be collaborating with Wind Creek on their Southland property! It's an impressive project and the fact that it's in my hometown of Chicago makes it even more appealing.”

Wind Creek Hospitality is owned and operated by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians in Alabama. Its multiple casino locations include Wind Creek Atmore, Wind Creek Aruba, Wind Creek Bethlehem, Wind Creek Curacao, Wind Creek Montgomery, Wind Creek Wetumpka and Wa She Shu Casino in Nevada.

The brand recently signed a multi-year agreement with NBA team the Chicago Bulls. The brand will collaborate with the Bulls on several entertainment options and in-game fan promotions.

Its Wind Creek Chicago Southland Casino location will represent the Bulls as the team’s official casino during and after its construction.
