Though we're not on a coast, some Chicago restaurants are serving up fresh, fantastic bivalves. Here are some favorites.
Beautiful fresh sashimi and briny oysters make this one of the top spots for seafood in the city. Also, chowders and other soups will warm you up. Plus, great seasonal pies!
This place can do no wrong - great beer and oysters and brunch. Also try: mussels, fish stews, and roasted chicken.
Housemade hot sauces and mignonettes nicely complement East and West coast oysters. Also try: tomato-laced mussels and clam chowder.
Served with red wine mignonette, these oysters are the perfect beginning to a decadent French meal.
The beauty of Fish Bar is that preparations are simple - including oysters, which are stripped down to the basics: bivalve, mignonette, lemon. Also try: mussels cooked with rosemary and white wine and the crab gumbo. Plus - key lime pie!
