166 E. Superior St., Affinia Chicago,
United States,

Superstar Chef Marcus Samuelsson, owner of NYC’s Red Rooster and winner of Bravo’s “Top Chef Masters,” brings his skills to bear in Chi-Town at this seafood restaurant in the Affinia Chicago hotel. Beneath shimmering metallic light fixtures, patrons sink into couch-like leather furniture and start the flavor party with handcrafted cocktails, fresh oysters and mini yellowtail tacos. Main courses like pan-seared halibut come with a dizzying parade of sides, including the house signature mac and cheese (which includes goat cheese and sausage.) For dessert, “The Candy Bar” offers chocolaty morsels in flavors like pistachio cherry or wild cocoa hazelnut.
