The Savoy, a new seafood-focused restaurant, opens it doors tonight in Wicker Park following a little delay. The spot, by owner Ricky Moore and exec chef Brian Greene (Purple Pig, Abigail's), features a New England-inspired nautical theme, complete with a white-washed facade, knotted ropes, red brick, oceanic art and more.

The restaurant will start lunch service tomorrow and introduce its late-night menu tonight as well. The big draw, in addition to the Asian-, French- and Spanish-inspired seafood menu (with some land-based grabs to boot), will be its extensive absinthe menu, doled out from the dark back lounge.

While some things on the lunch menu, like the raw bar items, Sunray Venus clams, oysters Rockefeller, coconut red curry mussels and more, will be repeated at dinner, you'll have to go during the day or late night for the lobster roll and the togorashi ahi tuna lettuce wraps.

The drink program features both classic and modern cocktails, a wide variety of craft beers and a few dozen types of absinthe. What seems to be missing from the wine list, however, is a nice selection of rosé, which would go really well with the seafood. In any case, check out all the menus below, starting with dinner.
