Best Place to buy seafood to cook at home

Looking for the best place to puchase fresh seafood to cook at home in the Lincoln Park/Lakeview area. Moved here from Boston and have had some difficulty finding good fresh seafood.

  1. Isaacson, Stein & Sons on Fulton at Halsted St. is my favorite for selection and price. Also, Costco occasionally has fresh ahi tuna that is superb, as well as some great fresh halibut.

    1. Dirk's on Clyborn (in the Pier 1 shopping center on the W side of the street)

      2070 N Clybourn

      1. I am also a big fan of Dirk's on Clybourn! Great variety of fresh oysters!

        1. I'm a third vote for Dirk's. I've had great tuna, salmon, and scallops from there. The guys know their fish and are very helpful.

          1. Second Issacson's and also toss in Supreme Lobster if you want to drive out of the area
