Plus: Neon Wilderness opens in Wicker Park and Oyster Bah launches a brunch buffet.


A great brunch buffet is a true treasure. When Oyster Bah (1962 N. Halsted St., Lincoln Park) announced that it was launching one, my ears perked up, particularly as it’s under the same ownership and management as Shaw’s Crab House (21 E. Hubbard St., River North), which has one of the best in town. Oyster Bah’s special doesn’t disappoint. For about $35, brunch guests can enjoy unlimited oysters on the half shell, shrimp cocktail, ceviche, mussels, omelets, French toast, and more. Go on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to get in on the feasting.
