CHICAGO | Calumet Fisheries is a South Deering institution, and has been serving up its popular smoked seafood since 1928. In 1948, brothers-in-law Sid Kotlick and Len Toll puchased the business, and it’s been in the family ever since. The building is a small shack with a service counter and no seating. Calumet is take-out only, but once customers have their food they can sit or stand near the restaurant and eat. We like perching ourselves along the 95th Street bridge (you might recognise it from the ‘bridge jump’ scene in The Blues Brothers), and watching the world go by.

Smoked fish was very popular in Chicago in the 1940s and 1950s but today Calumet is one of the few remaining places still serving it. Fish, clams and shrimp are brined overnight then smoked using oak logs in the natural-wood smokehouse, which has been in use since the restaurant opened. The result is some very tasty smoked seafood. Along with smoked seafood, Calumet also serves fried fish which is also super tasty.
