Much like a toy chest, sushi rolls are stuffed full of brightly colored shapes and drizzled with eel sauce. Play with your food with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of contemporary Japanese fare and drinks at Tatami in Glenview, the sister restaurant of Kansaku in Evanston.

Recently renovated, under new management, and sporting a sophisticated new atmosphere, Tatami’s dedicated chefs personally select the fish that adorn the restaurant's elegant sushi rolls to ensure top quality and freshness. This attention to detail extends to the preparation of cooked delicacies, such as chilean sea bass ($22), resting tenderly beneath a glaze of lemongrass yuzu sauce, and tofu katsu ($13), deep-fried tofu steaks lounging on a bed of steamed rice and sautéed veggies. Bundled bites include the Veggie Garden maki roll ($11), a bountiful harvest of tempura sweet potato, jalapeño, and avocado enclosed in an ephemeral soybean paper, and the california roll ($5), which takes the shape of the Hollywood hills during digestion. Diners can ensure each savory bite makes it to the stomach's food party with a beverage from Tatami’s fully stocked bar of wines, imported Japanese beers, and hot and cold sakes.

Tatami Restaurant

Tatami Restaurant's chefs whorl fresh fish, colorful veggies, and chewy rice into more than 60 types of sushi for in-house dining adventures and elegant catered meals. Diners graze on a bounty of traditional and fusion-inspired sushi combinations, many of which bear names evoking the city on the lake and its flavorful denizens, including the signature Kansaku roll, which shares its name with Tatami Restaurant's sister restaurant and salutes the eatery with shrimp tempura, freshwater eel, and a ribbon of cream cheese. The 10-piece Lake Shore Drive roll employs outrageous flavor tactics to upstage Chicago’s beach vistas, pulling out all the stops with a combination of yellowtail, cilantro, and spicy mayo. Diners craving a hot, hearty meal can savor traditional Japanese entrees such as chicken yaki soba or tofu katsu with sweet chili.

They are best known for their sushi. Come here for delicious and diverse rolls. Pair it with some warm saki and you will enjoy yourself greatly at this cozy quiet restaurant. Their entrees are wonderful too, mainly teriyaki based dishes (so please keep this in mind if you have a strong taste for something else!). The restaurant is in a small plaza and easy to miss to someone not from the neighborhood. Keep an eye out for the sign that says Reagan Meats (this will be the most readily identifiable sign from the driver's point of view!). Enjoy!
