Union Sushi + Barbeque Bar is a bustling neighborhood restaurant located in Chicago's popular River North neighborhood. Union combines the tempered art of Japanese dining with a fresh, colorful and urban vibe...
With a sashimi platter we got a variety of fish, which all were fresh & tasty. This is one of few places that I can get plum wine (umeshu), which I suggest if you like sweet wine.
Adam, the head bartender is very nice and makes amazing drinks! Great selection of alcohol :)
Happy hour is perfect timing to try this place!
But lots of plates and share.
The sushi is reasonably priced for the quality and I like the option of black rice (for an extra charge) for my sushi. The service is excellent, and the staff really know their stuff.
Enjoy the great liquor selection.
Great view from upstairs.
Ramen is awesome. But the music here SUCKSSSSS; like nickleback sucky.
Black rice sushi, Kangaroo, Camel,Beef tongue & Escolar! Try them all. All my favs. Great atmosphere, music is awesome, mixologists making the drinks are fantastic. One of my favs when Im in town.
The skinny geisha drink is very refreshing
Great place to go with a group of friends for sharing plates. Quick service. On the casual side - great Friday after work spot. iPads for cocktails and specialty roles!
Happy hour 5-630:-) $1 oysters
Everything is so good! Love the black rice sushi, alligator, etc. Definitely try a few different things.
Camel Kangaroo Sushi on Black rice Escolar in an amazing sauce. Incredible food & drinks! Great atmosphere This has become a MUST when Im in Chicago.
Camel Kangaroo Sushi on Black rice Escolar in an amazing sauce. This has become a MUST when Im in Chicago. And the mixologist is fantastic
Spicy tuna roll. Love it. Love that they do half rolls (4 pieces), too.
Happy hour...beef skewers, sushi roll and $1 oysters. Thoroughly recommended.
I liked the lunch options, especially the crispy duck leg!! So tasty.
Best shrimp tempura sushi and order the spicy tuna with black rice 👌 ramen was very average have had better ones.
Get your own bottle.
I go here for the lunch special bento boxes and they have great happy hour deals.
Love the miso soup here. Really good spicy shrimp roll. $1 oysters after work!
Great Rolls, Great Sake!
The mushroom sushi was really great.
Don't try the ramen. They have no idea how to make the broth!
Wayyyy over priced for the quality. Sunda like prices definitely not sunda like quality.
Black rice sushi is the best. Love the spicy tuna roll and the truffled tuna. Just as good when ordered take out style.
Everything is delicious. Sushi with asparagus is my favorite. Be sure you still have room for a milkshake.
Dance music meets one of a kind sushi (and dessert) you can't experience anywhere else. You can't mess this up.
The black rice sushi sampler and truffled tuna appetizer are must-haves.
Give server your card and ask him/her to bring the best BBQ and sushi on menu course by course. Best way to experience Union. Peter the bartender on 2nd floor is very friendly. Leave him a nice tip!
Go for the alligator and uni ice cream
Black rice sushi is outstanding
The Cider Mule is a must have! Drink a few of em! You will be happy.
Get the Cold Cider Mule! Then get another! You will be happy.
Best sushi ever
Truffle tuna. Do it.
Offering one free dessert during Uber Chicago's CHILOVESuberX, 9/20-9/22.
Try the black rice sushi! Or, the collard-green wrapped rolls.
The lamb was succulent! Chef Chao was very personal and showed his passion for his work. The taste - ambiance and the price make this a must stop for anyone.
Best sushi this side of the Mississippi
Hokkaido roll is one of the best. Get it with black rice. Grilled scallop, avocado, masago-mayo, roasted pepper, jalapeno, garlic, wrapped in soy paper.
Say hello to Adam at UpBar! Or Peter or Ken...
$1 oysters, $2 beef filet, $4 shrimp tempura rolls during happy hour!
Oxtail Ramen: Mushrooms, crispy tofu, Napa cabbage, ginger, grilled tomato, parmesan, and slow-cooked, fallen-off-the-bone oxtail meat. A nice melody of diverse textures and big flavors.
Cobia Carpaccio was awesome. I recommend if you can, sit at the bar and let Peter Kim take care of you! Wow!
They should make their items order-able from my smart phone by adding them to the app "appay biz". That way, I can order ahead using "appay"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
