Yesterday, there was talk that the owners of West Town's Arami might be looking to open a second location of their popular higher-end and super fresh sushi joint in River North. And then it was confirmed, but with a twist.
Come August, Arami Go!, a fast-casual sushi spot by Ty Fujimura and chef BK Park, will actually open in Streeterville at 203 E. Ohio, so not far from the originally reported spot near the Shops at Northbridge.
This lunch-only counter-service spot will focus on a customizable and deconstructed bento-box-like format. "Guests will come in, choose their fresh fish, their rice, any veggies or tempura item, which will be placed separately in a 'bento box' served with sheets of nori for guests to enjoy their own customized sushi,” Fujimura wrote in an email. So, are you ready to roll your own?
