Treat Yourself: Shaw’s Crab House
A few days ago, I had the opportunity to cross a restaurant off of my ‘Places to Visit’ list. I had a few extra coins and I decided to treat myself to Shaw’s Crab House at 21 E Hubbard Street in Chicago.
If you dine in, you have your choice of dining in the Oyster Bar or the Main Dining Room. I experienced the Main Dining Room where there are cloth napkins and tablecloths. Crumbs are cleared from tables with stainless steel sweepers. Your servers are well educated about the restaurant’s menu items.
Be prepared to pay for great service and fresh quality seafood. You can easily spend a cool $100 on one side and an entrée, excluding tax and tip. My experience at Shaw’s Crab House was worth my coins and did not disappoint. Each bite from the appetizer to the dessert was nothing short of amazing.
Which dish was my favorite? You may ask. I actually do not have a favorite. Even the filet (I requested that it be crusted with blue cheese) was unquestionably cooked to perfection.
I am not going to take the time to describe each bite. I want you to take the time to treat yourself to dinner. I hope your experience is as great as mine.
