A casual, hip environment coupled with a giant menu (sushi, tacos, fish) attracts a vibrant group of well-dressed movers and shakers. Repeat diners know it's not a meal without a little dessert--in the form of creamy, homemade carrot cake--to finish things off.
This place is always packed, whether on a weekend night or in the middle of the weekday. It probably has something to do with the yummy upscale bar food, bloody mary bar (offered during Sunday brunch) and constant crowd of trendsetters looking to see and be seen.
When Asian food is on the brain, look no further than this wildly popular upscale River North restaurant. It serves a mix of sushi and trendy Japanese and Asian cuisine dishes and has a sleek, sophisticated decor to match. But don't expect to get right in if you want a table; good things come to those who wait.
