New ‘virtual’ restaurant Chuck’s Dockside opens Wednesday in Arlington Heights

Dock your boat — or automobile, as it were being — to select up the clean catch of the working day commencing Wednesday night at a new so-known as digital seafood cafe in downtown Arlington Heights.

Chuck’s Dockside is the creation of the proprietors at the rear of Passero, which moved to 3 S. Evergreen Ave. in 2019 following a successful opening down the block two a long time before. The Chuck’s menu is available for carryout and delivery from 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesdays via Sundays at Passero.

Owner/Chef Matt Peota was impressed to give East Coastline-style fare soon after producing a Friday night seafood menu at his Italian-American trattoria.

“Our ‘Chuck’s Lobster Shack’ menu is a weekly sellout,” Peota mentioned in an announcement. “We couldn’t assume of a improved possibility to open up a cafe committed to new, simple-feeding on seafood. We opened the second kitchen area in Passero, expanded the menu, and Chuck’s Dockside was born. My grandfather would be very pleased.”

Patrons can buy from a menu that includes New England clam chowder and bisque, lobster rolls (either Maine or Connecticut-style), coconut and garlic shrimp, cheddar chive biscuits and New England-style smoked ribs.

Curbside pickup is out there at Passero by calling (847) 814-8900, and supply is obtainable by GrubHub and UberEats.

Peota named the virtual eatery immediately after his late grandfather, who loved fishing and was known for bringing house his day by day capture for meal. Peota and his wife named their 5-calendar year-previous daughter Charlee, who they call “Chuck #2.”
