Concierge.com's insider take:

This tranquil Bucktown restaurant, situated in a converted brownstone, is a respite from Chicago's restaurant wars. Neither the decor (vaguely Scandinavian), nor the waitstaff (quietly efficient), nor the crowd of arty foodies detract from chef Takashi Yagihashi's elegant East-meets-West cuisine. Yagihashi stuffs summer rolls to bursting with Gulf shrimp and house-smoked salmon, and adds a rousing dressing made with capers, golden raisins, and mustard. Sliced pork belly is served on pillowy buns; tofu is wrapped around Alaskan halibut and paired with a fricassee of Japanese mushrooms; and the cocoa ginger cake makes for a big, exuberant finish.

Open Tuesdays and Thursdays 5:30 to 10 pm, Fridays 5:30 to 10:30 pm, Saturdays 5 to 10:30 pm, and Sundays 5 to 9:30 pm.
