Sushi By Bou
There are Sushi By Bou’s all over the place, and they follow the same down-and-dirty format: a timed omakase experience with tasty, straightforward sushi. The 10-seat Sushi By Bou in the Emily Hotel is no different. You get a choice of either a 60 minute 12-course omakase for $60, or a 17-course for $100—with a chance to add-on pieces of nigiri if one unagi wasn’t enough. Along with rapid-fire sushi, a meal here also consists of a lot of ‘90’s hip hop, and banter with the charming chefs. It’s a fun time, the food is good, and given how expensive Chicago omakase restaurants are, any opportunity to eat a bunch of great sushi without feeling the urge to check your bank account halfway through the meal is worth knowing about.
