Brendan Sodikoff’s sleek new sushi restaurant debuts today in River North. From the company behind High Five Ramen, Au Cheval, and Maude’s Liquor Bar, Radio Anago is a dimly-lit 45-seat sushi den. It’s nestled on the same black as Gilt Bar and Bavette’s Bar & Boeuf at 226 W. Kinzie Street.

Radio Anago features a concise menu of sushi classics. Sodikoff praised the menu’s format: a one-pager with colorful illustrations. There are five rolls, including a plum and cucumber vegetarian option. There are also nine nigiri selections and a tuna flight of otoro, akemi, and chu toro. There’s also a special fried chicken option with buttermilk, roasted matcha, and edible gold.

The highballs look like the start of the cocktail show with drinks including the “Kyoto Tonic” (Sipsmith gin, tonic, sansho pepper). While there’s plenty of sake and cocktails — along with a variety special shots — the beer and wine selection is a bit trimmer.

The restaurant shares a space with Sawada Matcha, the teashop that operates during the day. When the sun sets, the space transforms into Anago’s front lounge. Diners will pass through curtains to make their ways into the main dining room.
