When brothers Daniel and Douglas Casey were growing up in Chicago, their dad took them on special trips to local diners. After he passed away, they founded MadFish inside a spacious Chicago train car—complete with a black-and-white checked diner floor—as their tribute to him, and as a throwback to travelers who used to come to the area via train. They’ve dialed up that diner vibe by adding interior saltwater tanks and tossing white cloths across the tables.
Chef Chris works with fresh, local seafood and prepares plenty of fine-dining steak specialties, including Angus prime rib paired with aged gorgonzola blue cheese and showered with bacon-wrapped shrimp. But there are also casual dishes and regular specials, including a daily $9.99 early-bird deal that includes salad, dinner, iced tea or coffee, and key-lime pie. The team also has fun with desserts. The deep-fried Snickers bar, for example, is lavished with raspberry topping, Belgian chocolate, whipped cream, and powdered sugar, then sprinkled with purple sugar crystals. It turns a “fair type of dessert into a five-star dessert,” says Douglas, adding that they also serve vanilla-bean shakes and hot, homemade cookies on 45-record racks.
