SAVOR Fisk & Co.

When searching the city for a well-prepared and an interesting take on seafood, one could find themselves lost at sea—no pun intended. So many restaurants provide what the customer is looking for, so it's easiest to just pick one of what seems like hundreds.

If you're looking for mussels, salmon and well-crafted twists on American classics, Fisk & Co. ( 225 N. Wabash Ave.; FiskAndCoChicago.com ) is an excellent contender. With mussels and frites as its self-proclaimed specialty, the seafood restaurant gives customers all their asking for and more, coupled with an unbeatable view of Wacker Drive and the Chicago River ( if you're sitting outside, or inside at the window ).

The mussels come in two varieties: classic or coconut curry. The adventurer and avid mussel fan will enjoy the coconut curry, with its hints of lemon and garlic bringing out the sweet and spicy in the shellfish. To be shared or to enjoy as a main dish will suffice for anyone looking for an interesting take on the seafood staple.

The restaurant doesn't disappoint in its claim to fame, but does it surprise in its non-seafood options. Its main course of sauteed gnocchi highlights light and appetizing flavor that doesn't overstuff but delightfully satisfies the eater. Tomato, pesto, green beans and walnuts make for soft eating and some crunch to keep the flavor exciting and enjoyable.

One thing to skip is the white chocolate mousse, the restaurant's newest addition to their dessert menu. Although it is somewhat enjoyable at first, the multitude of flavors with cocoa, grape sorbet and hazelnuts leave something to be desired. The sorbet overwhelms the other flavors, leaving them as an afterthought.

Despite this, Fisk & Co. doesn't disappoint in its appetizers, main courses or its decor. The restaurant's bright, blue and yellow decor and dark wood paneling harken back to a time when elites traveled on the fanciest of ships. If you close your eyes, you might feel like you're on one, too.

Note: Restaurant profiles/events are based on invitations arranged from restaurants and/or firms.
