If you live in the Chicago area, you have got to check out my newest favorite spot! Its called L. Isaacson & Stein and its a fantastic fish market at the corner of Halsted & Fulton Market.
Fish is flown in fresh several times per week. They have so many different kinds of fish in the aisles and once per week they get items like live blue crabs in or extra large scampi (they look like mini lobsters!).
The selection is amazing, and the prices can't be beat... not to mention the freshness. When you don't have an ocean nearby, this is about the best you can do! You can pick your own whole fish and have them fillet it for you while you wait or you can choose to get their steaks, or fillets already pre-cut. Its such a great place - I'm usually in there about 3-4 times per week. Definitely one of the benefits of being unemployed.
