With stark white furnishings and a sleek, slightly space-age feel, this River North sushi spot throws off an upscale, modern vibe while remaining casual and affordable. Nearby downtown hotels mean plenty of tourist business, but that doesn’t keep locals away. The menu includes traditional and specialty maki as well as contemporary Japanese fusion dishes. If rolls are your thing, try the Ticky Tacky (crab meat, ebi and mint leaves topped with tako and creamy wasabi sauce) or the Fujiyama (crab meat, kani kama, shrimp and spicy mayo topped with king crab, tempura crumb and red tobiko). Not in the mood for sushi? Go for an order of rib-eye teriyaki or steamed sea bass with spring onion, ginger, shitakes, cilantro and soy sauce.
