Cafe Cancale

Cafe Cancale - Chicago

One Off Hospitality (Avec, Blackbird, Big Star, Publican, Violet Hour, etc.) opens its first French-focused restaurant in the space formerly occupied by Publican Anker. More specifically, Cafe Cancale specializes in seafood, offering more than 35 different oyster varieties, plus entrees like trout almondine with brown butter, truffle peach olives and radish as well as whole grilled lobster with yuzo kosho butter.

Located at the nexus of Bucktown/Wicker Park--at the Six Corners--Cafe Cancale was inspired by One Off Hospitality partner/executive chef Paul Kahan's visit to Brittany, France, a famed oyster town. The grande seafood tower showcases these oysters as well as mussels, clams, shrimp and beef tartare. Non-seafood favorites include roast chicken, steak frites an duck terrine.

There are a host of French wines on the menu, with many by the glass, plus French-inspired cocktails.
