Dinner Take-Out Pick

I followed my heart and it led me to sushi.” – Owner Cherie Cheung


Opened in 2007, Niu Sushi’s inventive pan-Asian menu blends Sushi, Japanese, Thai, Korean, and Chinese influences: little bites of modern Tokyo, Bangkok, and Shanghai, all blended in with the energy of Chicago. The menu offers a variety of sushi basics, but the real enticements are the one-of-a-kind “fusion makis” with such names as “Sexy Mexican,” “White Angel,” and “Diablo”. For those sushiphobes, there is a fantastic selection of vegetarian, stir-fry and soup creations.

Jiro Dreams of Sushi

Director: David Gelb

Jiro Dreams of Sushi is the story of 85-year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the world’s greatest sushi chef. He is the proprietor of Sukiyabashi Jiro, a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant inauspiciously located in a Tokyo subway station. Despite its humble appearances, it is the first restaurant of its kind to be awarded a prestigious three-star Michelin Guide rating, and sushi lovers from around the globe make repeated pilgrimage, calling months in advance and shelling out top dollar for a coveted seat at Jiro’s sushi bar. Jiro Dreams of Sushi is a thoughtful and elegant meditation on work, family, and the art of perfection, chronicling Jiro’s life as both an unparalleled success in the culinary world and as a loving yet complicated father.

Streaming Details:
Jiro Dreams of Sushi is streaming now on Netflix, Hulu, and is available for digital rental.
