My boyfriend, who is currently in culinary school and therefore very sensitive to the quality of foods, is turning 21 in a few weeks. Of course, since I'm the girlfriend, I have to plan everything and make sure he's completely happy with the choice.
He had originally requested dinner at Frontera Grill (because of Chef Bayless) but seeing as his birthday is on a Monday and Frontera is closed on Mondays, his second choice was "affordable Japanese."
Any suggestions as to "affordable Japanese" cuisine that tastes pretty good in the Chicago area? I know it's a vague and relative description...which is exactly what I've come here. I guess affordable would be $8-20 per person?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! I've got high standards to meet!
