With the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean thawing out after a winter spent under a delicate patina of ice, seafood will soon be available for the first time in months. Re-introduce yourself to oceanic awesomeness with today's Groupon: For $20, you get $50 worth of food and non-alcoholic drinks at Devon Seafood Grill. This Groupon is only valid toward Devon Seafood Grill's Chicago location.
With a daily bellow from a silver conch horn, Devon Seafood Grill summons the denizens of the briny deep to assemble a dinner menu of top-tier fresh seafood. Starters include Vietnamese crab spring rolls ($10.95) with a sweet 'n' sour dipping sauce and a shared sampler platter ($31) calling on the Triton's triad of jumbo lump crab cakes, calamari, and shrimp scampi. Flag-hoisters seeking oysters after a long day of emblem elevation can opt for fresh-shucked fare, including Delaware Bay oysters ($2 each) from Delaware and Blue Point oysters ($2.25 each) from Chesapeake Bay. Devon Seafood Grill's entrees largely stick to the aquatic trend—New Zealand king salmon with a sage-potato gratin and creamed leeks ($30), a vegetable ravioli with sautéed lobster ($24.50) and a mixed-grill plate with shrimp, scallop, salmon, crab cake, potatoes and spinach ($31) all make appearances—although several steak options are available, including a center cut filet mignon with choice of side ($31.95 for an 8 oz. steak). The origins of Devon's fresh fish selection reads like a list of vacation-package prizes on a game show, with a recent roster containing seared eye big tuna ($29) from the beaches of Hawaii, mahi mahi ($24.50) from the coasts of Costa Rica and cold water lobster tail ($34) from the tropics of Canada. All fish entrees come with a choice of side. All fish is grilled until it admits that it did, in fact, break the lamp in the dining room, unless requested otherwise by the diner.
While this Groupon cannot be used toward the purchase of alcoholic beverages, Devon Seafood Grill does offer a selection of more than 600 wines harvested directly from grape mines across the globe. This Groupon can be used, however, toward the drinking in of Devon Seafood Grill's elegant atmosphere, with wood paneling and the glow of soft lighting making for an accessible but intimate environment. Call Devon Seafood Grill to schedule your subaqueous soiree.
Though it can be a little tough getting a table, Chicago seafood lovers recognize Devon Seafood Grill as an affordable fresh fish source. Centerstage gives the restaurant a positive notice:
- What a pleasant surprise—a restaurant steps from the Magnificent Mile that neither caters solely to tourists nor worthlessly eats your money. – Kate Schwartz, Centerstage
- Devon Seafood Grill has the trendy-classy-fancypants vibe going on, but its not overly intimidating. I tend to enjoy ambiances but focus on the food, and found this place to be a winner on both fronts. – Allen M., Yelp
- …the menu and wine selections offer just the right amount of variety and are certain to please even the most decimating pallet. [sic] – shrley, Citysearch
