Red Eye Chicago - - Around Town -

Two Lights Seafood & Oys­ter Hus­band-wife team Keene and Me­gan Ad­ding­ton (Flat Top Grill, Tor­toise Sup­per Club) cre­ated Two Lights Seafood & Oys­ter in Old Town with a white-on-white sum­mer-home vibe that evokes their yearly va­ca­tions on the Maine coast. On a typ­i­cal day, there are two lov­ingly treated oys­ter va­ri­eties on of­fer, one from each coast, though avail­abil­ity oc­ca­sion­ally al­ters the mix. A large shuck­ing sta­tion sits in the mid­dle of the long bar; grab a seat close by, and you can watch your order be­ing prepped. A se­lec­tion of sand­wiches sup­ports the menu’s small plates, in­clud­ing an East-meets-West sand­wich of fried chicken nuggets with a tamari-gin­ger glaze, and of course, a very rich, very good grid­dled cheese­burger. The wine list is brief but full of fun, af­ford­able pours.

Open: Din­ner daily. Prices: Small plates $9-$19; sand­wiches $10-$19. 227 W. North Ave., 312-929-3091. — P.V.
