New England Seafood Company
When it comes to the freshest seafood in Chicago, look eastward. New England to be precise. Nestled on the outer fringes of Lakeview, New England Seafood Company peddles East Coast seafood so fresh you’ll think you’re on a beach in Maine. The owners hail from Massachusetts, and their affinity for seafood sourcing is evident in their daily supply of pristine nautical products, from live lobsters to salmon, mussels, haddock and lots more. Take your seafood home to cook yourself, or order off their dining menu to enjoy the likes of lobster rolls, baked salmon and clam chowder.
