Contrary to its name, the only thing served raw at this Wrigleyville spot are oysters. In fact, the place prides itself on its unusual meat and seafood dishes: Where else are you going to find ostrich, shellfish and alligator on one menu? Raw Bar is divided into two different spaces: There's a sometimes raucus bar and a more subdued room called the Ivory Lounge. The latter also has piano; jazz artists often play on Friday and Saturday nights. The crowd ranges from young to middle-aged, depending on what's going on at nearby Wrigley Field or at nearby Metro/Smart Bar. Daiquiris--using fresh seasonal fruits--are a bar specialty. Expect a raw bar with oysters, top neck clams, snow crab claws and sushi and sashimi. The menu also includes small plates (smothered alligator, blackened ostrich) and entrees such as duck confit risotto and Persian chicken.
