Enjoy the taste of New England in the heart of Chicago

Nobody does Maine lobster, crab cakes and fried seafood platters like New Englanders-and now Chicago can enjoy those treats as easily as Bostonians by visiting The New England Seafood Company on the North Side.

Part restaurant, part fish market, kids will marvel at the salt water tanks filled with live lobsters and crabs while parents check out the rows of fresh seafood like salmon, haddock, swordfish and scallops. Our group tried the baked salmon with Dijon mustard and brown sugar (delightful!), the fisherman’s platter of fried seafood with coleslaw, which was a deliciously gigantic portion, and the pan-seared crab cakes with just the right amount of coating on perfectly tasty crab meat. Not to be missed is the clam chowder and lobster bisque.

Kids’ choices include a haddock plate, and for landlubbers there are hotdogs or a chicken finger plate with fries. And fish-n-chip enthusiasts should visit on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for the all-you-can-eat special all day for $10.95.

With only about 10 tables, there can be a wait so plan accordingly. Also, if you’re apt to have some wine or beer with your fish, bring your own as the restaurant is BYOB. Many customers choose to carry out or buy the fresh seafood offerings and cook them at home.

With ocean smells and an authentic New England seafood ambiance, you’ll feel like you stepped into a quaint East Coast fishery without even leaving the city.
