Best Tuna dish in Chicago...

We will be visiting this week and my partner loves Tuna. Where and what dish would be the best bet.

  1. Tuna as in a sushi preparation? Seared? Grilled? Or is there no particular preference?

    1. Not sure what you are looking for, but the tuna bruschette here is awesome!

      1. I'm not a big fan of tuna, but my SO says the seared ahi tuna experienced at Deleece in Lakeview is the "best ever".

        Other than that, Chicago has some terrific seafood restaurants. In particular, you just can't go wrong with Shaw's Crab House, whose seared tuna is pictured at They also have a large maki/sushi menu in addition to their regular menu of cooked seafood; check out the dinner menu on their website at

        Shaw's also has a wonderful (albeit expensive - $55) Sunday brunch consisting of an all-you-can-eat buffet, including standouts such as their king crab legs, thick-cut caramelized bacon, best crabcakes in town, best crème brulee in town, and a selection of those maki/sushi on the cold buffet. But if you're looking for seared tuna, you'll certainly want to get it prepared to order (I don't think they have that on the brunch buffet).

          1. Thanks for all the replies
