Serving a menu of intoxicatingly exotic dishes until 4 a.m. each day, Diva Thai and Sushi Bar invites patrons to grab some post-nightspot nosh with a newly acquainted friend or somnambulant early bird.
Warm up with cool forkfuls of ponzu-dressed seaweed salad ($5), or move straight to a piquant main course of Thai-inspired salmon teriyaki ($14). Colorful platters such as the cashew-nut entree offer a confettied cornucopia of pineapple, vegetables, cashews, and a choice of meat ($9), providing plenty of boldly flavored bricks for personal food pyramids.
More raw tastes can be sated with sushi selections that range from classic nigiri and sashimi ($4+) to fuller rolls such as the white tuna and avocado ($6). Elaborate contemporary concoctions include the Red Carpet roll ($16), a lightly torched bundling of shrimp tempura, cream cheese, and avocado topped with a fetching cap of spicy scallop and sweet strawberry sauce, giving taste buds a taste of the A-list without unpalatable paparazzi or tooth-marking limos.
- You’ll find a tried-and-true maki selection including Alaska and spicy tuna rolls, along with hearty Thai favorites such as pad thai, fried rice and Pad Kee Mao. If you’re in the mood for something a little fancier, try the Red Carpet Roll: tempura cream cheese and avocado, topped with spicy scallops and a strawberry cream sauce with red tobiko. – Metromix Chicago
Diva Restaurant doesn't just offer a large menu of traditional Thai cuisine and classic and modern sushi rolls. It also serves the dishes up during impressive late-night hours stretching until 4 a.m. every day of the week. Just blocks from Wrigley, evening and late-night crowds take to the BYOB restaurant for miso soup and chicken teriyaki or bite into the soft, flavorful noodles of pad thai.
Sushi chefs craft fresh rolls packed with succulent cuts of tuna, shrimp, or salmon, garnished with scallions and tobiko, as well as create vegan rolls packed with shiitake mushrooms or sweet-potato tempura. Diners can also try out what the menu calls "contemporary rolls," which are creatively named rolls such as Dancing Queen and I Will Survive, featuring smoked salmon, tamago, and unagi, and soft-shell crab, cucumber, and sriracha, respectively.
