It shouldn’t take a Saturday night reservation or a small fortune to have a delicious seafood meal. But as founder Donna Lee searched for a restaurant offering healthy, quick and affordable seafood in Chicago, she soon realized one simply didn’t exist. So, she built her own. The first Brown Bag Seafood Co. opened at Millennium Park in 2014.
Since then, we’ve stayed committed to that initial vision: providing our guests with quality seafood in an approachable, counter-service format. From our classic Salmon Powerbox to our Crispy Cod Tacos (and everything in between!), we use fresh, sustainably sourced seafood, flown in from around the world every day. Whether you prefer to relax on the patio with a house-made cocktail or grab a healthy meal to go between meetings, you can always count on us.
And we’re not planning to slow down anytime soon. As long as there are people who – like Donna, six years ago – are lacking a casual seafood joint in their lives, we’ll be looking to introduce ourselves. Always with our amazing food, and always with our blue bandanas and a smile.
