Would we suggest that someone from Vancouver or Maine come here? Probably not. But if you’re near McCormick Place and need a dinner spot, consider Chicago Oyster House a valid option. They have a variety of decent oysters, along with things like crab legs, sushi, and steak in an upscale space. Get the fresh oysters, anything fried, and skip the sushi.
