It sure seems like Seafood Boils are a thing right now in Chicago. And when there is a thing, Eater Chicago is all over it.
With that said, they recently highlighted 12 spots in Chicago to get some of this! No South Loop locations are featured on the map, but they do note that some of the spots now have a second location in our neighborhood:
lowcountry - Root for the Cubbies and experience a Gulf Coast boil at this picnic-table-filled Wrigleyville bar. Choose from shrimp, snow crab, mussels, clams, crawfish, or lobster by the pound and cover it with weak (aka Lebron) or hot sauce. The fresh seafood is served directly onto a red-and-white checkered tablecloth with sides of Cajun fries or honey-jalapeño cornbread. Don’t forget the deep fried Oreos for dessert, either. A second location in the South Loop recently opened.If you care, there are also two Chinatown spots that are called-out:
- Dolo Restaurant and Bar
- Mr. Wang Traditional Malatang & Louisiana Seafood Boil.
