About the restaurant
"Hugo's Frog Bar & Fish House opened its doors in February 1997 in the heart of Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood, next to sister restaurant Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse. Over 20 years after owners Hugo Ralli and Steve Lombardo set out to open the city's finest seafood restaurant, Hugo's continues to be the destination for premier east and west coast oysters, crudos, frog legs, lobster and seasonal fish and shellfish, in addition to Gibsons Prime Angus and Gibsons Grassfed Australian steaks. An extensive wine list, classic cocktail list and selection of impressive signature desserts accompany the menu of fresh seafood, steaks and chops. Hugo's seafood is delivered daily, earning The New York Times to praise "the fish could only be fresher if it swam in by itself.""

Excellent restaurant for something different. Lamb lollipops are delicious. Charcuterie Board is perfect for two people, Recommend more fruit with it though. We sat outside but inside it's quite intimate. Highly recommend.

About the restaurant
Thank you for choosing SLYCE, where pizza is our passion. We have preserved the art of making hand crafted artisanal coal fired pizzas. Our mission is simple: Have a simple menu that allows us to focus special attention to every ingredient that comes into our building. We choose and use the best quality ingredients possible. We do not believe in premade, mass produced food. We source locally grown or raised products whenever possible and use one of the cleanest natural burning resources to heat our ovens. At SLYCE less is more, as our fresh ingredients are delicately placed, not piled on, to create a perfectly balanced pie. Our dough is made in house daily, hand stretched to order, and baked next to a burning pile of coal giving it a thin, bubbly crust with charred edges and leopard spotting on the bottom. So sit back and relax, as we hand craft you one of your favorite, perfectly charred pies.

Our server, Rita J, was outstanding! We were celebrating my birthday and she made it a very special experience with a champagne toast and souvenir photo. The food and drinks were prepared perfectly. We had the clam chowder, field greens salad, bone-in ribeye and bone-in New York strip steaks. There was also a special birthday dessert served. This was our first time dining here and we would definitely return.

It was ABSOLUTELY fantastic. We went for our anniversary and they blew us away. The ricotta small app was rich sweet and delicate. The filet mignon meatloaf was delicious and wrapped in a layer of bacon. The portions were good and the flavor and service fantastic. I cannot recommend it enough.
