Japonais

Upon entering this modern Japanese restaurant, patrons are wowed by a Jeffrey Beers-designed interior adorned with a water wall, oversize mirrors, red leather chairs, and an undulating wooden ceiling hung with copper chandeliers. Visitors can dine at the sushi bar or head to the couch-filled lounge which opens onto a seasonal patio overlooking the Chicago River. As impressive as the restaurant's setting is the menu of traditional and contemporary Japanese dishes from executive chefs Jun Ichikawa and Gene Kato. Signatures include the lobster spring rolls and Le Quack Japonais: house-smoked duck with hoisin sauce, mango chutney, and moo shu wraps.
