Berwyn’s Best Seafood

The Berwyn Development Corporation’s (BDC) Berwyn’s Best competition began in early June and was fixed on finding the best seafood. Eleven establishments with seafood on their regular menus competed to make it into the Top 5 of seafood-serving establishments. These five local haunts submitted their fan favorite seafood dishes for the second round of voting and now the vote is in! The winner is Lavergne’s Tavern for their Mexican Scallops: Chile-lime dusted seared scallops with corn esquites, queso fresco, micro cilantro and lime wedge.

Owner Jerry Hernandez reacted to the award saying, “We are thrilled to add a third “Berwyn’s Best” title to our list at Lavergne’s Tavern—Cocktail, 2016; Egg Dish, 2017; and now Seafood, 2018! Our team works hard to invent cocktails and dishes that are not only delicious, but also creative and that people will love. Our Mexican Scallops are inspired by the “eloteros” that push their carts in the hot summer months in Chicago. It’s a lot of fun taking something people are familiar with and elevating it with ingredients that you may have never thought would pair well— in this case, a variation of elotes and fresh scallops.”
