I'd heard random comments about how good Arami was, and on a misc Weds night, decided to make the jaunt and give it a go. Pulling up, I was skeptical, this isn't an upscale stretch of Chicago ave, by any means. We walked in and to the back, and the restaurant is absolutely charming (and packed for a weds!). This is the sort of menu that presents a problem, as there are so many things I wanted to try that we had to narrow things down. We ended up getting the Toro Tartar Bite and the Spicy Tako Springroll (Both at the server's suggestion). Both good, but the springroll was amazing. While there were many amazing noodle dishes on the menu, for which I will return, we went the sushi route. Ordered the Chef's Choice Sashimi and several rolls.
This was, by far, the most fresh and delightful shashimi I have ever had in my life, hands down. I am usually really picky which fish I will eat Shashmi style, yet I ate every single piece that was presented. The rolls were amazing as well.
All of this for VERY reasonable prices and more the adequate service.
I can't wait to go back, this blows other sushi places out of the water.
