From My Menu

Chef Ina Pinkney reviews Fish tacos at GT Fish and Oyster
$$$ | Breakfast/Brunch | Seafood
Near North Side
"Just when you thought you had tasted everything possible in a fish taco, Guiseppi Tentori puts chicharrón crumbs on top and takes you to a new place (where you happily follow)."
Chef Merlin Verrier reviews Lobster roll at GT Fish and Oyster
$$$ | Breakfast/Brunch | Seafood
Near North Side
"Sometimes simplicity is better. Why ruin lobster with too much extra BS? Keep it plain and simple by letting the ingredients shine. Chef Guiseppe uses this restraint perfectly with his version of Eastern seaboard's classic lobster roll."
Chef Matt Maroni reviews PEI mussels at GT Fish and Oyster
$$$ | Breakfast/Brunch | Seafood
Near North Side
"The only thing this mussels dish is missing is more bread for sopping, please. If they have snapper carpaccio on the menu, order that, too. If I could order three on one plate, I would."
Chef Kurt Tarpley reviews Oysters at GT Fish and Oyster
$$$ | Breakfast/Brunch | Seafood
Near North Side
"They're just consistently the best I've eaten in Chicago. They serve the same varieties as the other guys, but a place that can store and clean those things quickly, with no flecks of shell and all the liquor intact even when they're crazy busy, is a pretty special thing."
