I Love GT Fish and Oyster in Chicago for Seafood

Michelin-rated and 2012 Bib Gourmand winner, GT Fish & Oyster opened in in Chicago in March of 2011. Food and Wine’s Best New Chef 2008, Giuseppe Tentori, has developed an innovative menu that changes seasonally including: Squid Ink Gnocchi with Maine lobster; Braised Baby Octopus with roasted Roma tomato sauce and chili-infused polenta; Chorizo Stuffed Squid, Shrimp & Saffron scented Risotto; Foie Gras and Prawn Terrine with Szechuan peppercorns, apricot-shallot chutney; and Brandade Croquettes with orange-fennel salad.

During Chicago Chef Week, I ordered the Tuna Poke with mango, cucumber and black sesame for your first course. For the second course, have the Walleye served over black garlic gnocchi, spinach with onion marmalade; it will be the best fish dish you have ever had!!! For dessert order the Sherry Trifle with rasperries. Chef Giuseppe Tentori scored a home run with this lunch menu.

The nautical-themed restaurant is located at 531 N. Wells Street in Chicago. For more information visit www.gtoyster.com or call 312-929-3501.

Enjoy cocktails devised by BRG’s resident mixologist Benjamin Schiller. Some of your option include: Apricot Blossom with Prosecco, apricot liqueur, and rose water; Hayman’s Old Tom with Pimm’s No. 1, cucumber and grapefruit oil; and the Highland Daisy with Altos Plata Tequila, blackberry syrup, lemon and mint.
