Address: 1700 South Michigan Avenue, Chicago, US
Some call this Japanese restaurant—which presents both fusion and new Japanese dishes as well as traditional fare—the best sushi in Chicago. Few can contest that this is at least some of the tastiest, freshest sushi spots in town, as well as a perfect spot for a date night or a casual lunch with friends. The service is excellent, and the proof is in the pudding: It gets very crowded at dinnertime, so stop in early! The crowning glory is that you can bring your own wine and there is no corking fee—didn’t we say it was perfect for date night?
