An oyster bar and restaurant in the Loop that’s reliable if you’re looking for something close to the office. It’s nicer than some of the dingy alternatives nearby, but not as fancy and corporate as a generic steakhouse. You can have a business meeting here or even catch up with an old co-worker all the same. Stick to the basic seafood items if you want something to eat, particularly oysters.
