    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Not as bad as the Ulterior Epicure, but very, very close.

    went to the store the other day and there were these spciy shrimp sushi that they don't always make... A. Ma. Zing.

    All I can say about them. The mayo was so tasty and there was just enough Tabasco.

    All right, where can I get the best mediocre sushi in chicago?

    I've been on the first flight into chicago from the coast and have seen them loading piles of fresh fish into the cargo bay (they handle it much better than luggage...) so I know it exists somewhere...just not at the all you can eat groupon specials my friends drag me to

    considering it's America, just follow the pricetag - yelp will lead you to the best you're gonna get in Chicago.

    I didn't see the oenotheque there, though I'm almost certain they made a '95.


    they have released a '95 and a '96, though the prices are just staggeringly high.

    kevin took all the bottles for corkage and they didn't drink the Oenotheque, so not in the pic I guess. I've seen 95 Oeno though.

    What little sushi I have had there was quite good although it is just a piece or two before a bowl of ramen.

    Anybody in SF who like Japanese should check out Kappou Gomi. No sushi, but sashimi and lots of other great dishes in a low key atmosphere with great service. Not cheap, obviously, but very well priced for what is probably the best Japanese in the city.

    it looks like it imploded it's sushi guts on itself. Just reminds me of much I hated living in the midwest.

    ^ That seems even more of an abomination than the typical shitty sushi Korean-Americans serve to unwitting whiteys.

    even the screaming shrimp heads on that plate are telling you to get out as soon as you can.

    Is that from Arami? The sushi certainly didn't look like that when I used to go.
