Sushi in the touristy part of town...

dzop | Nov 21, 2006 03:10 AM

So here's my request:

I'm a New Yorker who's frequently visting Chicago nowadays because my girlfriend is working in South Bend.. she (and I) love sushi, but South Bend is far from a sushi mecca.

We almost always end up staying at/near N. Michigan Avenue. I know, its desperately uncool, but 'dems the breaks.

What I'm looking for is a very good sushi restaurant thats within a reasonable distance of that area...doesn't have to be walking distance per se, but not a schlep, either.

I don't mind if its pricey, but I'd rather not have it be obscene. I also don't really care about the "scene"; in fact, I prefer a more sedate place over a TimeOut-certified hotspot. If you know New York City sushi, my favorite sushi-joints are Sushi-zen and Sushi Yasuda, and I dislike the Sushi of Gari and other de facto omakse-only places.

So does anyone have any suggestions? I know that there are many threads regarding Chicago sushi, but I'm looking for a very specific style of place, and I'm hoping someone reads this, gets the jist of what I'm looking for, and can throw me a recommendation.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
