    They recently changed the menu so goodbye sea bass, turkey club, and perfectly seasoned French fries. Shaki shaki, chicken nachos, and Asian chopped are still on point...as well as their soundtrack.

    One of my favourite late night eat spots. Half price sushi after 11pm. Great atmosphere (lively w/ good music), quick service with a club in the basement. Never disappoints. Try the jugs of mojito.

    One of the best all-around restaurants in Chicago. The staff was friendly and welcomed folks in street clothes or all dressed up. If it's your first visit, they may offer you a free dessert!

    Great music and beer, the ahi tuna burger was delicious, and since we were first timers we had to try the carrot cake. The service was amazing!

    This is quickly becoming our go to restaurant. They have everything. The nachos are awesome! They are HUGE! A half order will feed 2. Tacos (fish or braised short rib) are great!

    The streak frites was amazing, probably the biggest steak I have gotten at any restaurant where I have gotten steak frites. The spicy tuna with spicy mayo is really good as well.

    The Green Chili Cheeseburger here is just exceptional! Grated sharp cheddar, fire-roasted poblano chilies & chipotle aioli. They also have a decent beer list.

    My go-to spot for lunch in river north. For vegetarians: chips and guac app (delic),Brussels sprout salad, sweet potato roll and veggie burger. All solid choices.

    The crowd is as varied as the eats—tourists, lunching ladies and local working stiffs rub elbows—and everyone seems content with the large portions. Braised pork tacos and plump maki are both hits. Read more

    Food here was delicious. We made a reservation and got seated within 5 minutes. Food came out really fast and just as we ordered it. We were in and out in under an hour.

    Obsessed with their chips and guacamole (has corn at the bottom)! I did not like the salmon sushi roll. The punch will treat you well - totally recommend.

    Saturday brunch, 50's, 60's music provided a nice atmosphere. Wish the menu mentioned the fish tacos were build your own. When built they were a little underwhelming.

    Tight space good burgers for Evanston. Slaw is savory heaven. Bloody Mary bar, I will forgo my Sazarac for that. Go off peak and eat well.

    Pomegranate mojitos? Don't mind if I do. Also, if you're feeling like setting your diet aside, the nachos are insanely delicious. They're also enough to feed a small family.

    Save room for dessert. Carrot Cake would make you give up any diet your on; and don't be deterred "foam", after Peanut Butter Foam you may never be satisfied by peanut butter cups again.

    Stars like Josh Duhamel and the Glee cast load up on their crunchy tuna rolls and famous carrot cake–only to dance off the calories downstairs at Sub51. Tip: Make a reservation or expect a big wait.

    While definitely a scene for near North Side singles, this edgy-looking environs also boasts an eclectic menu. Come for the company, stay for the sushi. And of course the usual cache of cool cocktails

    No wait for Sunday brunch! Delish apple baked French toast, breakfast tacos and more. Heck, show up in PJs and get 10% off. Hurry, before the secret gets out & the line forms out the door.
