Downtown Shucking: 8 Oyster Specials at Downtown Chicago Restaurants

Chicagoans love their bivalves. With its Midwestern location you might not think of Chicago as a great spot for oysters, but its precisely because of it that we have such a great selection. Since we’re in the middle of the country we can have oysters flown in from both coasts, giving us a fresher all-around selection.

Of course, since they have to be flown in these slippery little suckers can get to be a bit expensive. Fortunately there are frequent, and often daily, specials that make it easy to fill your oyster obsession without emptying your wallet. Here are 8 oyster specials at downtown Chicago restaurants:
