CHICAGO’S BEST RESTAURANTS SERVE UP THE WORLD'S BEST SUSHI
As a dining clientele educated in the world’s foodways, Chicagoans have come to understand and appreciate the finest sushi.
Here are ten of Chicago’s best restaurants, offering sushi that can compete with the seafood offerings at any restaurant in the world.
Mako sets before diners perfectly composed dishes of fish and seafood, presented omakase style (the chef decides, and he makes great decisions about fish).
Kyoten in Logan Square is where Otto Phan lays out some of the city’s most exciting sushi preparations; we recommend the omakase presentation of twenty miraculous bites.
Arami in West Town represents a new wave of Japanese dining, with belly ramen, uni shooters and other innovative takes on the sushi tradition.
Coast Sushi Bar offers innovative, creative new takes on traditional sushi, and as a special added bonus, you can bring your own beverages.
Momotaro has three floors of spectacular dining, private on the third, general public on the second, and a spectacular izakaya space on the first floor.
Matsuya is a classic Chicago sushi restaurant, and if raw fish is not your thing, there are fantastic ramen dishes.
Yuzu Sushi & Robata Grill combines the best of the raw and the cooked, with a range of excellent raw fish and some tasty meats sizzling off the robata grill.
Kohan Japanese Restaurant on Maxwell Street tells us that their goal is to serve “a five star quality meal and service at a reasonable price.”
En Hakkore is focused on the food of Korea, and some food historians believe that sushi originated in Korea, so – no surprise – there’s much outstanding fish on the menu.
Mirai between Ukrainian Village and East Village offers up some of the most innovative sushi preparations you will find…and they have a fantastic sake selection.
