For a limited time only Alaskan Salmon is running wild at Di Pescara.
From Thursday, August 11 through Thursday, September 8, Executive Chef Mychael Bonner is featuring special entrees using Wild Alaskan King Salmon and Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon flown in daily from some of Chicago’s top Seafood Purveyors. King Salmon or Chinook Salmon is the largest of all the species, some can grow to over 60 lbs. Sockeye Salmon is known for its deep red color and superb flavor. The salmon will be featured in the Pan Roasted Copper River Sockeye Salmon, served with a crispy Japanese scallion pancake and sweet soy glaze ($33, plus tax and gratuity) and Broiled Alaskan King Salmon, served with heirloom cherry tomatoes and sautéed summer vegetables ($38, plus tax and gratuity).
What’s more refreshing that a platter of chilled seafood and a glass or two of bubbly? Yes, we are talking oysters on the half shell, juicy shrimp and an all time favorite: Stone Crab Claws from Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab served with their legendary Mustard Sauce.
When enjoying high quality fish, it’s sometimes best in its simplest form: raw. Shaw’s Crab House serves a selection of delectably fresh sashimi, including Naoki-Style Sashimi like the Yellowtail, Apple & Basil sashimi served with mint basil oil, shallot and black pepper vinaigrette.
You also can’t forget about oysters. Enjoy them at Quality Crab and Oyster Bah during happy hour (or anytime) accompanied by an order of chef selection fries – you’ll get either Caesar dressing, parmesan or garlic crunch. View Quality Crab and Oyster Bah’s full happy hour menu.
At RPM Seafood perfectly crisped and perfectly salty hit the spot when it comes to the Dover Sole Fish & Chips. Served with Sauce Gribiche (hardboiled yolks, mustard and cornichons), the mixture of creamy and tart compliment the crispiness of the fish. The Maine Lobster Tempura also highlights the delicate lobster flavor with the fried and airy tempura batter, while the ponzu and dijonnaise round out the flavors of this dish.
