Pescadero Seafood & Oyster Bar is Serving Up The Best Seafood on The North Shore

Cynthia A. Raymond | August 21, 2019 | Food & Drink


Pescadero Seafood & Oyster Bar

So fresh, you’ll feel like you’re surfside.

THE NAME Romantically Spanish for “fish merchant”

THE TYPE Walk-in-only rustically sleek seafood joint, offering catch-of-the-day and family-friendly choices

THE CHEF Matthew Fitzgibbons. Pescadero is brought to you by the crew behind Napolita Pizzeria & Wine.

THE DRINK Hot July days call for a No Man’s Land ($12) with Old Forester 86, Gran Gala and Angostura bitters—delightfully frozen.

NO. 1 ON MENU Collectively, the Raw Bar, with fresh oysters, oyster shooter cocktail ($7) and ceviche ($18)

WHY WE LIKE IT Only fresh fish on the board until it sells out (then there’s the lobster sliders).

BEST ENDING Better beginning: a happy hour daily from 3 to 5pm with $5 tap drinks and $1.50 oysters (dessert as the afterparty)

WHERE TO GO 1167 Wilmette Ave., Wilmette, 224.215.3011,
