Davis Street Fish Market

Location: 501 Davis St., Evanston
Cost: Normally around $35 per person

A few weeks back my family was planning to meet up for dinner in the near north suburbs with my aunt and uncle. I took the purple line all the way up to Evanston to meet my dad a bit early and catch some of the Bears game. He had some coupon to Pete Miller's, hence the Evanston trip, but they were closed when we showed up. Suddenly, we found ourselves stranded in downtown Evanston without a good place to watch the game. Leave it to the undergrad Northwestern campus to have a paucity of good places to watch a sporting event. After wandering around a bit, we stumbled into the Davis Street Fish Market.

We'd been here a bunch of times before, but I'd never realized the bar seating and TV's. They've got a lot of seating variety, but we took a bar table and were basically the only patrons. On a good going out night, the wait can really build, so you should make sure to get a reservation. The price is very reasonable for fresh seafood with most entrees in the low $20 range.

The Food
I've had a whole bunch of this menu in the past. Some of my favorites have been the Fried Oysters, the Skate, and the Pike. This time we were just grabbing some snacks for the game. We went with the Smoked Trout Guacamole and a pound of the Peel-N-Eat Shrimp. The shrimp is always great, and my dad and I could've probably just eaten this all day. The guac was solid too with a great balance between the lime's acidity and the smokiness of the trout.

Davis Street Fish Market is an excellent place for fresh seafood if you happen to be in Evanston. I usually go with the shrimp or the oysters, but they've got a great variety on the menu. If you happen to be in need of a place to get good food while watching the game, it's not half bad either. I'm giving them 4 out of 5 Pearls.
