Lure Fishbar - Chicago
With locations in New York City, South Beach and now Chicago, Lure Fishbar lays out a spectacularly broad and deep selection of fish and seafood. The new and very popular Chicago location is housed in the Museum 21c Musuem Hotel, and it offers breakfast, lunch and dinner.
If you love fish and seafood, Lure Fishbar is where you want to be. The menu is nothing short of jaw-dropping: caviar, clams, oysters and other seafood, as well as carefully sourced and prepared fish, available cooked or sashimi/sushi style, make Lure Fishbar the place you want to go for what might be the best selection of aquatic deliciousness in Chicago.
Take the magnificent seafood tower, the Royale, for a breath-taking selection of gifts from the sea: 8 oysters, 6 shrimp, 6 clams, 6 crab claws, Alaskan King crab, 1/2 lb. lobster, mussels escabeche, seafood salad and tuna tartar. If you like to start your dinner with truly wonderful bites of select fish and seafood, the Royale is what you want.
There is, of course, a mind-boggling array of cooked seafood and fish, and the standouts include Black Seabass, Miso-glazed Salmon, and Steamed Red Snapper. There are also many simple fish and seafood dishes such as Lobster Mac n' Cheese, Tuna Tacos and Crispy Calamari.
Double Bone-in Pork Chop and Pan-Seared Chicken are available for those who prefer to dine on the creatures of the land. Of course, there's also a good selection of steak, including a 14-ounce New York Strip and a 28-ounce Bone-in Ribeye. As you might expect, your steak can be enhanced with various luxe accoutrements like Crab Oscar, Grilled Lobster Tail and Grilled King Crab.
To drink, there is a superb collection of craft cocktails to choose from, and the carefully curated wine cellar gives you the opportunity to pair your meal with just the right sip. If you like sake, Lure Fishbar, unsurprisingly, offers some of the finest examples of this Japanese beverage in Chicago.
