New England Seafood Company Fish Market is a seafood restaurant in Chicago. It was featured on a TV show “Check Please” and, as a seafood lover, I decided that I must check it out 🙂
Their specialty is lobster rolls, and there are not too many places to get those around here – that’s why we made a trip from the Chicago suburbs to the heart of the city just to try the New England Seafood Company restaurant. In fact, it took several trips to the city to finally get a seat at that restaurant – forget about going there at peak time on weekends as the wait will be way too long. We were finally able to get a seat at the New England Seafood Company Fish Market at 11am on Wednesday.
This restaurant has a fast-food-style ordering where you come to the counter and order. They give you a number and then you have a seat at your table, and when the food is ready, they bring it to you. Here’s the picture of the New England Seafood Company Fish Market interior:
It also has an outside seating area in the summer:
Since it is also a Fish Market in addition to a restaurant, they also sell seafood. Here’s the picture of their seafood counter:
The menu is hand-written on a big chalk board:
Here are the entrees from the New England Seafood Company Fish Market restaurant (priced between $18-$20): New England Style haddock with Ritz Crackers, mixed grilled seafood, grilled salmon topped with Dijon mustard and brown sugar, grilled swordfish with homemade salsa, pan seared sea scallops.
Next are the Baked & Grilled Dinners (priced between $14-$17) – a choice of haddock, tilapia, salmon, mussels with chorizo, swordfish and carb cakes, served with coleslaw and a side of rice or vegetables. They also have Fried Plates – haddock fish & chips, clams, scallop, shrimp, Fisherman’s platter or chicken fingers.
New England Seafood Company serves excellent seafood soups – New England clam chowder, lobster bisque or cioppino. If you love lobster but are on a budget, get the medium bowl of Lobster Bisque for $4.95!
And of course what is New England without lobster? You’ll find plenty of lobster in the New England Seafood Company Fish Market! They have Maine lobster boils – 1 lb Maine lobster for $22.95 and 1.5 lb Maine lobster for $32.95. They also have lobster rolls for $16.95.
In addition to the lobster rolls, other rolls on the New England Seafood Company menu are clam roll, scallop roll and crabmeat roll. They also have a salmon burger and a haddock sandwich.
Are you going to this restaurant with children? If your kids don’t like lobster, don’t worry 🙂 New England Seafood Company Fish Market has a kids menu that includes chicken finger plate ($5.95), haddock plate ($6.95) or hot dog (5.95). So this restaurant has something for adults and the kids alike!
Here’s the picture of their specials, also written on a chalkboard:
As you can see on the specials board, they have Cannolis! What a perfect dessert to have after a seafood feast!
And finally, here’s the picture of the lobster roll that we got. This lobster roll was absolutely out of this world! The bread was super soft like a cloud, and the lobster so fresh and meaty. And the homemade chips were the crunchiest I ever tasted! That lobster roll was absolutely perfect, I was savoring every bite!
