Kamehachi of Tokyo - Wells Street - Chicago

Kamehachi of Tokyo was originally founded in Chicago in 1967 by Marion Konishi, and is widely recognized as the first sushi bar in the city.

The restaurant offers several signature, classic and vegetarian rolls, but one of the highlights is the sushi “boat,” which serves anywhere from six to 20 people. Chef-selected sashimi and maki rolls are served in a decorative boat, and prices range $60 to $350. It’s the best bet for those with larger parties to satisfy.

Additional locations are in Northbrook, River North and in the Loop.
