Bavette’s Bar and Boeuf

Starting our blog on the best seafood restaurants in River North is Bavette’s Bar and Boeuf at 218 W. Kinzie Street. The ambiance here sets the mood – and it’s gorgeous. Despite being known as a steakhouse, Bavette’s has plenty of amazing and delicious seafood. We sampled the Baked Crab Cake then tucked into a king crab and they were both heavenly.

This is just the beginning. #oysters #bavettes #hogsalt

GT Fish and Oyster

Next up on our blog on the best seafood restaurants in River North is GT Fish and Oyster at 531 N. Wells Street. It’s an amazing place for seafood and you should definitely start with the oysters as their selection is second-to-none. They even teach classes in oyster shucking! We sampled the Lobster Mac & Cheese and the Fried Onions and wow! They also have a sommelier on-site.

Da Lobsta

Finishing up our blog on the best seafood restaurants in River North is Da Lobsta over at 416 N Clark Street. This is more a fast-food lobster service but the food is still darn good! We sampled the Chicago Lobster Roll and a Lobster Bisque Soup and both were out of this world. The portions of lobster are pretty huge too. They also have a food truck so watch out for that.

Omg omg omg👅💦 #dalobstachicago
