Many things in life, such as lava, post-breakup emotions, and experimental avant-garde children’s theater, cannot be enjoyed in their rawest form. Savor a rare taste of raw goodness with today’s deal for Raw Bar and Grill in Wrigleyville. The menu at Raw Bar is stuffed with exotic, sharable tapas dishes, including blackened ostrich, mushroom-smothered alligator, grilled frog legs, and the eponymous raw oysters, along with more conventional fare. While satisfying their taste buds, patrons can treat their eye-spheres to classic art deco décor, and their ears to the sweet intonations of live music on Friday and Saturday nights.
- There's really two entirely different entities here: a quiet seafood-themed dining room in the back with gentle piano music, and a loud adjoining bar where power-yuppie patrons drink stiff martinis until the wee hours. – BlackBook
- From the outside this place looks like your typical bar in Wrigleyville, however inside its completely different! Dining room has a really nice ambiance, very intimate setting. – akm107, TripAdvisor
In the heart of Wrigleyville, diners savor Raw Bar’s namesake plate—fresh, raw oysters amid 40s and 60s art deco. However, the eatery’s seafood offerings encompass cooked cuisine as well, such as clams, lobsters, Dungeness crab, and octopus. Grilled frogs’ legs complement the aquatic eats, along with alligator meat smothered in creamy Louisiana mushroom sauce, and ostrich, a lean red meat discovered by far-sighted farmers who mistook ostriches for chickens. Mediterranean and Persian offerings, such as hummus and Persian chicken potato salad, round out the menu, and diners can wash down their meals with pours from the oaken bar, such as beers and hand-crafted margaritas.
