Seafood markets

Tudor_rose | Sep 20, 2012 11:24 AM

Are there any great seafood markets in the Chicagoland area? I've tried Burhops and wasn't impressed. I also tried Fox & Obel, and it had a bad smell. I have not found large fresh seafood markets like there are on the West and East coasts. Any suggestions? Whole Foods is about as good as it gets for me, but I would like more variety. I've also tried large Asian marts, and again, if you can smell the seafood, it probably isn't fresh. I also worry about additives to certain shellfish to retain freshness.
