Short Smoked Salmon

This white tablecloth seafood spot in Highland Park has been open for 29 years. One of its more popular dishes is the house-smoked salmon. Marinated in a soy-based sauce, the fish is quickly cold-smoked over hickory to infuse flavor. Grilled to rare or medium rare, the salmon is drizzled with a Pommery aïoli and comes with shoestring potatoes and sesame sautéed spinach. $26.90.
