About the restaurant
Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab is the culmination of a partnership between Lettuce Entertain You and Joe's Stone Crab, the legendary seafood restaurant of Miami Beach. Joe's features an extensive selection of seafood, flown in fresh daily, to complement the world's finest Florida Stone Crab claws. Joe's also features signature prime steaks, hand-carved by master butchers such as our 24 oz. Bone-In Rib Eye. Matched with Joe's famous side dishes, dinner only gets better when capped with a slice of key lime pie.

About the restaurant
"Hugo's Frog Bar & Fish House opened its doors in February 1997 in the heart of Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood, next to sister restaurant Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse. Over 20 years after owners Hugo Ralli and Steve Lombardo set out to open the city's finest seafood restaurant, Hugo's continues to be the destination for premier east and west coast oysters, crudos, frog legs, lobster and seasonal fish and shellfish, in addition to Gibsons Prime Angus and Gibsons Grassfed Australian steaks. An extensive wine list, classic cocktail list and selection of impressive signature desserts accompany the menu of fresh seafood, steaks and chops. Hugo's seafood is delivered daily, earning The New York Times to praise "the fish could only be fresher if it swam in by itself.""

River North (Chicago)
About the restaurant
Shaw’s Crab House is a Chicago institution that boasts a selection of seafood with a longstanding commitment to offering top quality ingredients since 1984. Shaw’s sources daily catches flown in from coast-to-coast by working directly with fishermen and farmers. With an ethos of spotlighting ingredients first, Shaw’s menu features simple preparations executed to perfection to allow quality to take center stage.

The design – cast in a 1940’s style setting – has two dining rooms offering guests a dual experience between the more casual and lively Oyster Bar and the traditional white tablecloth Main Dining Room. The Main Dining Room possesses classic and sophisticated warmth, is adorned with red accents throughout the room and plush seating lends the ideal setting for celebratory dinners and events or a simple night on the town.

Reservations made for "Hightop" seating will be for our casual Oyster Bar and reservations made for "Standard" seating will be in our more formal "Dining Room"
