Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Oysters
Oysters
$$$, Happy Hour, Seafood, Near North Side
"They're just consistently the best I've eaten in Chicago. They serve the same varieties as the other guys, but a place that can store and clean those things quickly, with no flecks of shell and all the liquor intact even when they're crazy busy, is a pretty special thing."
Lobster roll
Lobster roll
$$$, Happy Hour, 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."
