The Absolute Best Seafood in Chicago
While GT Fish & Oyster may look fancy (with the pedigreed chef, Giuseppe Tentori, to match), this is one seafood restaurant that isn’t above having a little fun. Because what could be more fun than $185 worth of Osetra caviar, or seafood towers stacked with the entire cast of Finding Nemo? Whether seated at the polished oyster bar, or in the dining room alongside a whale tail mural, it’s an apt place to splurge on everything from chilled crab claws and raw oysters to salmon poke and seafood cavatelli. GT also does a bang-up job with refined riffs on classic seafood comforts, like a loaded lobster roll with barbecue chips, garlic-marinated fish tacos with crunchy chicharrones, and fish & chips with meaty Atlantic cod and dill pickle remoulade.
