Sometimes you want a good piece of sushi without the black-clad servers, hip house beats, triple-digit bill and lighting so dim you can’t tell your toro from your tako. This tiny, no-frills sushi café offers just that, slicing up fresh, meaty cuts of all the standards, including tasty salmon, fatty tuna, mackerel and yellowtail. Try the housemade pickles and the soy-sesame-ginger marinated, grilled baby octopus. If you’re into Americanized, the Chicago Spicy Crazy is the one to try.
