There are only a few good drinks-and-a-light-bite options in the neighborhood, and Two Lights is one of them. It’s right across the street from Second City, and inside it looks kind of like an upscale seafood shack, with a long bar that works well for small groups or dining solo. The menu involves mainly seafood-focused small plates, and you should stick with dishes like the tuna poke tacos, shrimp, and oysters, all of which are good.
