Some of the best raw fish in town is at this small, unassuming West Rogers Park hideaway. You’ll find such incredibly fresh, melt-in-your-mouth yellowtail, bluefin, mackerel and fatty tuna that it seems almost silly to come here for anything but the sashimi omakase. But there's also restrained maki, like a fresh mountain yam roll with plum and shisho to round out your meal. Beyond the raw, Katsu’s crew has skills on the grill, turning out a tasty marinated duck breast and a crispy yellowtail collar that's great with a dab of shaved, pickled daikon, a sprinkle of sea salt and a spritz of lemon.

Top Quality Sushi.. No spicy mayo here.. That's Japanese ketchup :)

The neighborhood is actually Nortown, Not “West Rogers park”.
