Our friends at Chicago Eater have compiled their list. We agree!
720 W Randolph St, Chicago, IL 60661
Those in the know go to Mike Ham, more affectionately known as Sushi Mike, for his masterful ability to manipulate maki. The oversized rolls come filled with unagi, shrimp tempura and soft shell crab.
2. Juno Sushi
2638 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago, IL 60614
Chef BK Park is an artist whose palate is fresh fish and a sharp knife for a paintbrush. Follow-up a selection of nigiri with the signature tako maguro filled with both spicy tuna and octopus.
3. Macku Sushi
2239 N Clybourn Ave, Chicago, IL 60614
1751 W Chicago Ave, Chicago, IL 60622
Anime artwork, an eclectic soundtrack and BYOB have made Yuzu a neighborhood favorite. The sushi’s great too, of course, featuring an array of exciting, seasonal options.
5. Sushi Dokku
823 W Randolph St, Chicago, IL 60607
While the days of gorging on Godzilla rolls at Sushi Wabi are long gone, the owners kept their sushi dreams alive by opening Sushi Dokku just across the street. Here, the same creativity is translated to hamachi garnished with grapefruit, and black lava sea salt.
