Eaters in Lincoln Square have a new upscale sushi option to replace the popular shuttered Tank Sushi and short-lived Laughing Bird on Lincoln Avenue. Miku Sushi, run by two former Tank Sushi employees, is now open at 4515 N. Lincoln.
The renovated space now has a nautical theme with a mural of waves adorning the rear walls. The wooden sushi bar has a clean look opposite exposed brick. There's 80 total seats spread out in a front area, at a line of tables opposite the bar, and in a back dining area.
As previously reported, new owners Stanley Liem and Nuchsara Katekaew, who also own restaurants in Elmwood Park and Chinatown, drafted a menu that's 95 percent different than Tank's and includes maki, sushi, sashimi, nigiri, ramen, skewers, and hot dishes that include foie gras, alligator, and some other ingredients not often seen at Japanese restaurants. It's open for lunch and dinner and is currently BYO as it awaits its liquor license.
