It may not be the "place to be seen" that it once used to be, but Japonais still has some of the freshest, most innovative sushi that I've ever had. They also have the "rock", but that's a different story. This is one of my top 3 Chicago restaurants and we're going there in October. A little more expensive than your average sushi place, but it is well worth it. Please check out the website and menu.
I had to give a credit card to guarantee the reservation, so I am going to use the deposit method to reserve your spot for the dinner. Please pay the $7 deposit by 10/16. Upon arrival at the dinner, you will receive $5 back with the remainder covering meetup and paypal expenses.
If dinner is full, please RSVP no and ask to be placed on wait list.
