$20 for $30 worth of sushi and Japanese food, redeemable Sunday–Thursday
Named after the Japanese tradition of using trained cormorants to catch fish, Ukai specializes in raw morsels of the sea. They're prepared at a sleek sushi bar by the sushi chefs, and though they honors the classics, the aren't afraid to invent modern takes on seafood. To create the Ukai carpaccio, for example, they seasons a trio of thinly sliced fish with sliced dates, crispy bacon, lemongrass candy, and pineapple yuzu puree. They also devotes an entire section of the menu to Chicago sports teams. Guests can show their allegiance to the Cubs by downing a lightly fried maki roll filled with fresh mozzarella and shrimp tempura, or root for the Bears with a spicy salmon roll.
