Who doesn't crave the perfect combination of fresh seafood, a lively BYOB environment and stellar service from a local Chicago restaurant? I was so impressed by my experience while dining at Tanoshii Sushi in Andersonville, and I encourage you to visit the best sushi place in Chicago.
It's worth the trip out to Andersonville, and I am very much looking forward to visiting the other location in the West Loop. The ingredients selected for Sushi Mike's custom rolls are the freshest I have ever tasted compared to other sushi restaurants in Chicago. Tanoshii has designed a hidden menu where you can tell your waiter the type of roll you prefer and the chefs will use their expertise to put together the perfect combination for you. The maki selection is not worth looking at, although it is a more affordable option and their usual maki are cheaper than any other sushi place I have seen in the city. Two chefs crank out sushi for the entire restaurant, and it's fun to sit at the bar and watch the magic happen.
They have a smart system going at this place by convincing you to go with the Mike's roll. It's a little bit more pricey, but you can BYOB.
I told the chef I wanted to have scallop on top and veggies in the middle. He put together a mushroom roll with avocado and crab topped with a 14 year aged sweet balsamic sauce. It was a more high maintenance request and took a little bit of time to work out with my waiter, but it was worth the wait! The chef came to greet us at the end of our meal, and I am so excited to go back and try something new.
It's smart to make a reservation here and head out for a sushi night like never before!
