$10 for $20 Worth of Fresh Seafood
The staff preps cuts of freshly caught, seasonal seafood, including spring's runs of Alaskan wild salmon, halibut, and soft-shell crab (market price). Customers can choose from up to 40 fresh fish and shellfish, as well as smoked fish, fresh and frozen entrees, and wines that pair well with seafood. Customers can also scoop up freshly toasted lobster rolls ($12.95) and lobster-roll kits to take home ($11.95) with 1/3 pound of Maine lobster salad, a New England-style hot-dog roll, and a side of coleslaw. This Groupon is only valid at the Glenview and Hinsdale locations of Burhop's.
Burhop's Seafood Market
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!
