I think I should just turn SchallWeGetAway.com into SchallWeGetSushi.com.
I love sushi, and I like to think it loves me back. If anyone mentions going out for sushi, I’m already out the door and on my way. I don’t know what it is about these little rice rolls, but they are so delicious that they often put me in the best mood ever. Now you know.
So, where did I go this time?
Juno Sushi is in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood, near Lincoln & Wrightwood. Admittedly, I knew nothing about this one. My friend had only heard great things about it, and we were due for a solid sushi night. We made reservations for 7pm on a Friday (definitely needed!) about a few days out. I couldn’t wait for this evening. It had been over a month since I had it – obviously, not common.
My friend and I do not hold back when we dine together. No matter how full we may get, we always order everything we want to try AND dessert. We typically mentally prepare ourselves for how much we are about to indulge in beforehand. I’m sure glad we did this time, because there were a couple rolls on the menu SO good that we ordered them twice!
There are literally no bad things to say about Juno. The service was friendly and SUPER fast, the sushi was fresh and delicious, and the ambiance was modern and comfortable. We weren’t sitting on top of the other tables, like some cramped sushi restaurants.
The other aspect of Juno that I loved was the creativity of their dishes. The presentations were flawless and mouth-watering.
Would I recommend Juno? ABSO-freakin-LUTELY!
I’d recommend them over and over. I’m going to let the food do the talking:
Whew buddy! That was an overwhelming, insane amount of delicious food in one sitting. There was no way I was going out after that meal. It was so fantastic, I just wanted to reflect on everything I just ate and talk about it forever.
Juno Sushi has some of the most fresh sushi I’ve ever tasted. Writing this post was difficult, because it just made me want to be there again.
My friend and I split the check down the menu and it ended up being right on the nose at $100 with tip. Maybe we overdid it, or maybe there is no SUSH thing.
If you’re a sushi connoisseur (like I just deemed myself), then go to Juno Sushi in Chicago and let me know your thoughts! I know I’ll be back soon!
