The Low Down


Save Money: Daily 11:45am-3:30pm, get bento box specials with sushi, sashimi, teriyaki, miso soup and seasonal field greens for $15-$20.

Parking: Valet parking is offered in front of the building. There are also two parking lots a block away at Hubbard and Wells.

Look Good: Sneak up to the mezzanine lounge for a bird's-eye view of the action.

Where to Sit: Sit at a perimeter table for prime people-watching. Communal tables are cramped, with back-less stools that make for a sore back. At night, head to the rooftop lounge for a cocktail.

What to Drink: Specialty cocktails include mojitos, caipirinhas and creative martinis; sake and wine lists are extensive and not terribly overpriced, with several bottles in the $30-$40 range.
