With the memories still fresh of how great the burgers were @ DMK Burger Bar next door,
(http: //www.ppmapartments.com/blog/dmkburgerbar/) we could not wait to try the fresh seafood @ Fish Bar on Sheffield in the heart of Lakeview. This Michael Kornick and David Morton venture keeps things simple, from the name to the menu of raw clams and oysters, fried and seasonal seafood, great sandwiches and awesome salads. The clam chowder and gumbo are outstanding.
Our group had three calamari lovers who all agree ‘this is the BEST calamari we have EVER had!” We all loved the spicy bay scallops and the crispy fish fires. Good, too, is the classic, filler-light crab “patty” spiced with Old Bay and tucked into a bun. And the lobster roll? It’s so succulent and juicy it is one of the best sandwiches we ever had!.
This is one of the best restaurants in Chicago. Fresh, simple and creative small plates of seafood.
The staff is amazing. Friendly, intelligent, and well informed. Nice beer selection and creative cocktail selection. The casual comfortable ambiance makes the perfect Lakeview place for a date or lunch / dinner with friends. Go today!
Fish Bar is proud to serve sustainable, wild caught and responsibly farmed fish
