These "cute" Japanese street food specialists from Matthias Merges craft "fusion-y ramen" , steamed buns and "playful riffs on yakitori" alongside beer, wine, sake and booze sodas (Logan Square adds "creative" cocktails); the setups are "casual" with a touch of "hipster" , and somewhat "pricey" tabs can be dodged on Sundays when prix-fixe noodle menus are a "great deal."

“Serving farm-to-table cuisine before it became popular,” this Logan Square “mainstay” is a “gold mine” for “exquisite,” “creative” New American fare (including an “amazing” vegetarian tasting menu) and “wonderful” cocktails; a “well-informed” staff works the “stylish” yet “laid-back” room where you “never feel rushed” – even when there are “huge lines” for the “fantastic,” no-reservations weekend brunch.

Bill Kim hits the mark at these fusion "favorites" offering "crave" -worthy Asian eats ( "to-die-for" noodles, rice dishes to "write home about" ) made even more remarkable given their "quality" -to-price ratio; the funky counter-order digs have communal seats and bar service, and the West Loop location shares a building with its sibling bellyQ.
