Sushi Samba Rio

504 N. Wells St.
Chicago , IL , United States
(312) 595-2300

An offshoot of the New York original, which was made famous by Sex and the City, Chicago’s Sushi Samba Rio is now part of a small chain (other locations are in Miami, Las Vegas, and London). The restaurant offers a fusion of Brazilian, Peruvian, and Japanese cuisines, represented by signature dishes like the miso-marinated Chilean sea bass and the Bobo Brazil sushi roll made with seared Kobe beef, avocado, and chimichurri ponzu. Inside, the three-level design more closely resembles a nightclub than a restaurant, thanks to bright red banquettes, large almond-shaped light fixtures, concave wall panels, and live DJ's.
