Smack Shack Chicago!

If you are in Chicago, its worth checking out the new Smack Shack in the Google building!  During the VIP Grand Opening Party the hurricanes were flowing and the lobster rolls were rolling!

It may have taken longer than the Twin Cities wanted, but it would appear that diners feel it was worth the wait.  It’s already challenging to get dinner reservations at the Smack Shack, situated in the North Loop neighborhood.

There are few things greater in life than fresh oysters and champagne, especially if it is Veuve Cliquot.  The chefs shucked the oysters and presented it on the massive ice sculpture from Ice Occasions.

The centerpiece of the restaurant is the large blue lobster tank, ensuring that the lobster live in pristine water.

My faves:  Continental Roll (warm lobster roll), Smack Burger, Shrimp Boil.  (oh, and save some room for yummy dessert)
