Summer Chicago Trip: GT Fish & Oyster

I hinted in my previous post that I visited Chicago recently and had exciting food pics to share. I went to meet up with some close college friends, but also my god the food. When I'm in Columbus and eat out, the food is generally decent. But when I'm in Chicago, it's a whole different playing field. I go crazy and eat all the things because everything is amazing, so that by the time I'm back, it's hard to enjoy Columbus places for awhile :( One of my standout meals during this trip was GT Fish & Oyster, and this is what we had:

Green tea soba noodles with shrimp, tofu, bok choy, and thai chili soy vinaigrette. This dish was really great -- the shrimp were perfect and the vinaigrette had the best kick. It was a great light course to start the meal.

House-made clam chowder. I believe this is one of their most popular. Something about it was different and I can't put my finger on it (maybe it had a touch of alcohol?), but this is the best clam chowder that I've had.

Oyster Po' Boy Sliders with kimchi and peanuts. The bread was so pillowy, the oysters were wonderfully crisp, and the kimchi paired surprisingly well with everything. This was my favorite thing of the night, and we considered getting a second batch but decided to refrain for dessert instead.

Lemon panna cotta with strawberries, madeleines, and some kind of sorbet (rhubarb?). This is the most interesting presentation of panna cotta that I've tried, and I pretty much like most desserts that are creamy yet refreshing/fruity so I had to like this.

I was sho excites for my clam chowder. Even the crackers were above par...
