Cafe Cancale is a French-inspired spot in Wicker Park from the same owners as The Publican and Avec. The menu here has a seafood focus, and like Avec and The Publican, the food here is across-the-board delicious. We love the charred leeks with mussels and the well-balanced shared plate of clams, boudin blanc, and escargot in a buttery sauce. They also serve a fantastic lobster bialy, their take on a lobster roll. The space is light and bright, nice enough for a date but also good for a casual night of oysters and wine at the bar.

Shaw’s Crab House
Shaw’s is like the seafood version of a steakhouse. Come for a nicer dinner and order all the oyster, crab, and lobster.
Suggested by our writers
The Publican is a Medieval styled mecca of all things beer, pork, and oysters. If that’s not appealing, you can’t sit with us.
