A few years ago, Halsted Street in Lincoln Park was but a shell of the burgeoning dining and drinking Mecca it is today. In fact, the neighborhood at large was maligned as a bit of a restaurant wasteland, at least in comparison to other hot spots like the West Loop, Logan Square, and River North. Save for a few staples, the neighborhood had a ways to go to prove its validity. And thanks in large part to Lettuce Entertain You, Lincoln Park has done just that. Specifically, the restaurant group has practically transformed and elevated Halsted Street into its very own Magnificent Mile, adding to its established and esteemed Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba! with new destinations like Summer House Santa Monica and Stella Barra. Now comes news of the next venture, a seafood restaurant called Oyster on Halsted.

While Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba! pioneered Spanish tapas in the neighborhood, Summer House Santa Monica served up a beachy homage to Californian cuisine, and Stella Barra perfected the pizza template, Oyster on Halsted promises to round out Lettuce’s portfolio quite nicely with a focus on all things seafood. Of course, oysters on the half shell are at the crux of the operation, along with stuffed clams, steamers, crab cocktail, lobster rolls, lobster spaghetti, snapper, and more.
