Ai (translates to "love") is from Agnes Chua Yoshikawa and Gene Chua, the siblings behind Lincoln Park's Ringo Japanese Restaurant. Look for creative cocktails and late-night dining in the restaurant's red-and-black-hued lounge. Ai's pub menu includes more than a dozen happy hour items, including small bites such as edamame, tuna steak and fried pork potstickers. Available after 5 p.m., the lounge list also features a cheese plate and a selection of maki. The dinner menu lists maki, nigiri and sashimi, plus a selection of Japanese fare such as panko-battered crab and shrimp cake and wasabi-rubbed filet mignon.
