Can anyone recommend a restaurant that serves breaded fried oysters? I want to take my parents, who live in No-Man's-Land (northern Wilmette, on the lake), and don't like to travel into the city any more. Evanston or north would be great.
By the way, my initial search turned up the thread about riverside fish shacks that fried shrimp. What a blast of nostalgia! I live in San Francisco now, but one of my fondest Chicago food memories is a greasy brown bag full of those crunchy sweet amazingly-seasoned critters. It's great to hear that there are still a few of these joints left.
