Penny Pollack from Chicago Mag’s Review of GT!

Pollack’s Dinner at GT Fish & Oyster in Six Bullet Points

GT Fish & Oyster (531 N. Wells St.; 312-929-3501), the instant River North hot spot from Rob Katz, Kevin Boehm (Boka, Landmark, Girl & the Goat, Perennial Virant), and Giuseppe Tentori (Boka), opened March 31st.

• The décor: Like a Cape Cod fish house—albeit an awfully spiffy one.

• The vibe: Hipster heaven, but happy rather than hallowed.

• The noise: Tolerable.

• The service: An army of friendly, knowledgeable, helpful staffers.

• The prices: For the quality and the portions, as friendly as the wait staff.

• The food: OMG. Specifically, tuna poke with mango, barbecue eel with wasabi, sunfish seviche with chimichurri, lobster roll with fried onions, carrot cake with cream cheese gelato. Crab cake, meh.
