fahlstrom’s fresh fish market

Cereal Sign

“Although Glenn’s Diner lives on in spite of the departure of its namesake leader, Glenn Fahlstrom, I think I’ve found my new go-to place for seafood and I’m not looking back … I feel my love for seafood rekindling. This is neighborhood cooking at its finest.”

Drop anchor at Fahlstrom’s Fresh Fish Market, a rather attractive new diner, deli and, yes, fish market situation with a bunch of cereal thrown in, which, God, was a great idea, now open in Lakeview.

“Fahlstrom’s menu is the ‘Ulysses’ of diner menus: a stream of culinary consciousness codifying everything from burgers and blue tilapia to waffles and whitefish. Every brunch dream and seafood fantasy is within reach … but you could go crazy without a plan.”
