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.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
