Evanston City Manager Wally Bobkiewicz told Rotarians Tuesday morning that a Chicago-based seafood restaurant has shown great interest in taking over the space at Davis Street and Hinman Avenue that until recently was occupied by the Davis Street Fishmarket.

Bobkiewicz, a prominent local Rotarian who is ending his year-long term as president of the Rotary Club of Evanston, made his remarks in an address to the Rotary Club of Evanston Lighthouse at its regular weekly meeting at the Hilton Garden Inn.

The popular Davis Street Fishmarket closed last month after a three-decade run at 501 Davis St.

While he was not at liberty to disclose the name of the interested party, the city manager said that a seafood restaurant in Chicago had expressed an immediate interest in the location to city officials soon after the Davis Street facility announced it was closing.
