Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises in February opened a 10-seat, 18-course omakase restaurant within Sushi-san, an experience created by Master Sushi Chef Kaze Chan and his team.
Guests enter through Sushi-san in River North and go upstairs to the Omakase Room, where they dine around the sushi bar to watch the chefs in action. Seafood is delivered daily in a partnership with the Toyosu Fish Market.
The beverage menu was developed with Kevin Beary (Three Dots and a Dash and The Bamboo Room), sake sommelier Daniel Bennett and wine director Richard Hanauer (RPM Restaurants), and includes more than 100 bottles of whisky, an extensive sake list and hand-chipped ice.
The Omakase Room offers two seatings Thursdays through Saturdays at 5:30 pm and 8:30 p.m. for parties ranging from one to four. Prices start at $250 per person, plus tax and not including tip, with the option of adding beverage pairings.
