THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Nick's Fishmarket Restaurant Review

: This suburban sibling of the downtown destination does its catches right, serving properly prepared, pristinely fresh fish. A plush, maritime-inspired setting and attentive service ensure dining here is a date-worthy affair --- especially if you order the broiled Australian lobster tails (though admittedly it’s a splurge at more than $60). Slightly more down to earth, the blue crab-crusted tilapia is a worthy investment. There are dishes for landlubbers, too, but they’re not really why folks dine at Nick’s. While waiting for your food to arrive, take time to ogle the large tropical fish tanks in the low-lit dining room. For dessert, we suggest the Key lime pie. Its counterpart is at 222 W. Merchandise Mart Plaza, Ste. 135, 312-621-0200.
