Helmed by chef Mari Katsumura, Yūgen melds contemporary Japanese cuisine with classic French techniques, resulting in a beautiful tasting-menu experience in the West Loop. The address and dining room may look familiar: The space formerly housed three-Michelin–starred Grace. At Yūgen, guests are invited to splurge on a $205 11-course tasting menu, which includes delicate dishes like savory egg custard with Santa Barbara uni, foie gras and Asian pear. Pastry chef Jeanine Lamadieu crafts exciting desserts including the innocent-sounding "Milk and Cookies," a melange of buttermilk, meringue and caramelized hojicha milk.
