Mirai Sushi

Japanese in Wicker Park, Bucktown & Ukrainian Village

This high-energy restaurant has a higher-energy saki lounge upstairs; both are packed with young locals enjoying some of the freshest sushi in the area. From the trance-hop electronic music to the young, black-clad staff, Mirai is where connoisseurs of sashimi and maki (rolled sushi) gather to throw back cocktails between savory morsels of yellowtail and shiitake tempura lightly fried to perfection.
