Devon Seafood Grill unveils a new oyster bar, a new chef, and new menus.

 

 

Change is afoot at one of downtown Chicago’s quintessential destinations for seafood and steaks. The surf & turf-friendly Devon Seafood Grill recently welcomed a new executive chef, christened a new Oyster Bar, innovated the cocktail program, and unveiled a new menu. That’s a lot of news. Let’s sift through all the details you need to know:

 

The chef captaining the kitchen at Devon Seafood Grill is John Cosnotti, a chef whose eclectic resume has seen stints all over the map, from Kansas City to the Virgin Islands. Those colorful experiences, which ran the gamut from barbecue to Italian cuisine, have equipped him well to preside over a menu focused on both seafood and meat. While Cosnotti works on fine-tuning a new chef tasting series for the restaurant, he’s added an arsenal of new dishes to the menus, from beef carpaccio and coconut curry mussels to umami-packed roasted mushrooms with truffle butter and smoked paprika fries with espelette pepper rouille. And that’s just for starters. Entree entrants include lobster pot pie, shellfish bouillabaisse, rack of lamb, Kansas City strip steak, and spaghetti di nero, among others.
