Dirk Fucik, Chicago's friendliest fishmonger, is welcoming Slow Food Chicago into his shop for a cozy dinner celebrating the bounty of our Great Lakes.

Dirk and his wife, Terry, will present nine family-style dishes featuring fresh seafood from Lakes Michigan, Huron, and Erie, and also from fish farms in Wisconsin.

BYOB -- Dirk and Terry will take care of the rest! The menu includes:

***Smoked Whitefish Spread***
Hardwood smoked lake whitefish from Susie Q Fisheries in Two Rivers, Wisconsin. Fresh flaked meat from whole smoked fish combined with a blend of fresh mayonnaise and low fat Greek yogurt and fresh herbs. Served with assorted Red Hen breads.

***Smoked Rainbow Trout Wraps***
Rainbow trout fillets from Rushing Waters Trout Farm in Palmyra, Wisconsin. Cedar plank smoked trout with savory pecorino/anchovy sauce, sautéed pepper and onions in a flour tortilla wrap.

***Panko Rainbow Smelt***
From Lake Erie, Leamington, Ontario. The original "fish French fry". Panko breaded, crispy fried, served with homemade garlic aioli.

***Walleye Sandwich***
