Fish to Go on Center Street

Takeout comes no more bare boned than Center Street Fish Market, 1212 W. Center St. The Spartan approach isn’t necessarily a bad thing, though. The long-running, cash-only establishment is one of several on the Northwest Side where customers order from one side of a partition similar to that of a bank’s drive-through. 

The Market offers reasonably priced perch, whiting, catfish, cheeseburgers, pork chops and shrimp. A $5 fish sandwich meal deal includes a choice of a perch or catfish steak between two slices of square white bread and a generous handful of straight-cut and crispy French fries and a can of soda; customers can also enjoy a burger version of the $5 meal deal. Spritzing on a packet or two of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce that comes with fish orders adds the zest preferred by some soul food aficionados. 


Rolling back Barack Obama’s reforms, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has directed federal prosecutors to seek the harshest sentences for drug offenses. Is it bad policy to fill the prison system with nonviolent offenders?
