Sushi restaurants may be a dime a dozen in the suburbs, but some places just stand out by their creative menus and fresh out of the water taste. Tatami Restaurant in Glenview is one of those places. The elegant and intimate restaurant delivers contemporary Japanese cuisine and boasts a menu that proves there are many fish in the sea.
Fish is delivered daily from overseas to deliver the freshest and tastiest sushi for their customers. Enjoy creative rolls like Kansaku (Shrimp tempura, freshwater eel, cream cheese, wasabi tobiko and asparagus rolled in soybean paper served with wasabi mayo and eel sauce) or Kamikaze (Spicy tuna and cucumber roll topped with seared tuna and black tobiko served with spicy mayo and eel sauce). The menu feature standard and not-so-standard rolls as well as an extensive list of Nigiri.
Although sushi is their forte, there are plenty of cooked entrees and appetizers from the kitchen so you can happily feast of Teriyaki Salmon or Chicken Kat Su while your dining partner feasts on sushi. Owner/chef Yoon Jae Kim and executive chef Seung Joon Kim combine more than 20 years of experience. Side everything with a libation from the full bar of red/white and sparkling wines, specialty Saketini and an array of imported Japanese beers, bottled premium sake and hot/cold sake.
Whether you seek familiar sushi preparations, traditional Japanese cooking or unique and innovative contemporary cuisine that blends Asian and Western cooking styles, Tatami's seasonal cuisine, comfortable décor and knowledgeable service will provide you a memorable experience. And with a $5 for $20 ($40 minimum) wedeal your wallet will thank you!
