Stunning heavily Japanese influenced tasting menu, the staff are incredible - they work as such a cohesive unit, like they’re all extensions of the same limbs! They were so attentive but not over the top, knowledgable and affable. Overall such a treat and I would happily go back / recommend to all. More

WOW!! I'm a cold sake fan and Momotaro had some spectacular sake varieties that I've not seen in the U.S. They are readily available in Japan but not Stateside. Enjoyed "Bride of the Fox." It has a fruity flavor and a slight sweet finish. Amazingly drinkable. Afterwards, had a glass of Kyoto sake called "Pearls of Simplicity." A total joy!! Clean crisp from sip to swallow. Will go again for more sake adventures. More

Discover West Loop

While once primarily an industrial district lined with warehouses, the Chicago West Loop has experienced a major transformation in recent years. Home to "Restaurant Row" and easily accessible using public transit, this neighborhood is now one of the trendiest (and tastiest) neighborhoods in Chicago. You can experience a variety of dining experiences along "Restaurant Row" from a burger and beer at a pub or upscale diner to a number of fine dining options. This stretch also includes sushi, tapas, sports bars, coffee shops and cocktail lounges. You really can have it all here. For dessert, you can always stop by a French or Greek bakery to pick up a fresh pastry, or head to one of the local donut shops.
