The Burhop family keeps their fish markets stocked with just-caught, never-frozen goods. They do this by going right to the source—wholesale distributors in Alaska, Hawaii, New England, and as far away as Australia. Their connections with these distributors stretch over the course of Burhop's 88-year history, which started when Albert "Pops" Burhop founded a wholesale-seafood business in downtown Chicago. When locals started offering him money and moon rocks in exchange for the prized cuts of fish, Pops decided to cut out the middleman.
Today, they proudly report that many of their loyal customers are transplants from the East and West Coasts, where fresh seafood is easier to come by. Ironically, Burhop's gets fresher stuff than many stores on the coasts do, thanks to Chicago's central location, which enables quick shipping from all of America's shores. In the shop, customers can watch as the filleters skillfully ply their craft. Get to know your Burhop’s fish mongers! A series of online video tutorialss teach home chefs to prep mouthwatering lobster tails, soft shell crabs, tuna burgers, and more.
No matter the weather outside, the inside of Jimmy's Island Grille feels like a relaxing, tropical vacation. It's more than just the Hawaiian-fusion feel or the natural light flooding in the tall windows. Fresh fish flown in from either coast make guests feel like they're ordering right off the beach without getting sand in their shoes. The menu changes every day, depending on what's available, but appearances may be made by such delicacies as fresh Florida stone crab, blue crab claws, Hawaiian mahi, and fresh king crab. A superior selection of prime steaks, such as the 14 oz prime and the 32 oz porter house satisfy meat lovers, and the kitchen crafts its desserts in house instead of outsourcing it to an evil witch's home in the woods.
One of the first things you notice about Tavern on La Grange is how colorful it is: hot pink and indigo lights wash walls in a neon watercolor effect, and the bottles behind the bar are backlit with red and fuchsia. Murals of art deco-style buildings and figures give the room another added pop. Pasta and steak dishes are among the menu's crowning achievements, along with the likes of lobster tail and lamb chops. People fill the restaurant's spacious, kaleidoscopic dining rooms throughout the week to take in bistro-style meals, drinks, or one of the establishment's periodic events. Those evenings are just one part of what the restaurant's owners hope makes Tavern on La Grange "a quality dining experience and community meeting place."

Run by Bob Chinn's nephew, Chinn's 34th Street Fishery has made a name for itself with fresh seafood that earned a feature on ABC7's Hungry Hound. Tuna, king crab, and jumbo shrimp get flown in daily from Hawaii, Alaska, and Florida. Chefs prepare the oceanic delights in a variety of international styles, whether drizzling them with lemon butter and white wine, blackening them with Cajun spices, or tempura-frying fillets. They also pair fish with swirls of pasta al dente or a mound of filet mignon that's juicier than an orange wrapped in the National Enquirer. Diners can pair their seafood with signature dishes including garlic butter–dipped rolls, tall mai tais, or housemade desserts.
