The nearest ocean to Chicago may be hundreds of miles away, but that doesn’t stop us from having some of the best sushi around!

Let’s start with a Chicago favorite: Shaw’s Crab House.  A go-to spot for oysters and lobster rolls, but make sure to try those tuna rolls, too. The sushi is simple, yet well-made and offers garnishes such as mint, shallots, basil and more.

Arami, located in West Town offers chef’s choice sashimi including 14 slices of seafood for $65. Don’t just try out the fresh seafood — make sure to stay for their cocktails and cozy ambiance. Their old-fashioned is made with seaweed-infused Japanese whiskey and yuzu-pineapple bitters.
