We know it's part of a chain and in a mall. Don't tell anyone, because it'll ruin our hipster cred, but we kind of like the mall, we've been known to patronize chain restaurants (especially those imported from California) and we love McCormick & Schmick's. What's not to love? The wide variety of fresh fish flown in from around the globe, prepared to your specifications and served by staff who can tell you what's cooking and how it'll taste? The variety of oysters from Texas, Canada and points northeast served fresh, briny and raw from the oyster bar? The blue crab tower appetizer with mango, avocado and huge lumps of moist crab meat? Listen, you want non-chain authenticity, there are plenty of shacks around town slinging fried catfish and shrimp. If you're like us and occasionally want to treat yourself to the kind of seafood that's usually found in cities with harbors, you can't do better than a trip to the mall. Just wear a hat in case any of your cool friends see you there.
