nigiri san saetWe may be biased, but along with serving the freshest sushi in Chicago, there is a lot to love about the Sushi-san – Lincoln Park space, including the bar, which features floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open onto an intimate patio on Halsted Street, and the eight-seat sushi bar, perfect for grabbing a quick dinner while sipping a Kappu-Zake (6 oz. cup of sake).
