Makisu Sushi Lounge and Grill offers the highest level Japanese cuisine to the near north suburbs of Chicagoland bordering the prestigious neighborhoods of Skokie, Lincolnwood, Niles, Edgebrook, Sauganash, and Edison Park.
Design enthusiasts David Kim and Mike M successfully incorporate traditional accents with modern design creating a vibrant fusion of light, color, and space into a spectacular extra-sensory backdrop. The large panoramic windows allow the eastern sunlight to majestically shine through thoughtfully placed foliage that combined with elegant furnishings and dashing diners to create a picturesque scene that can be the front page of any modern luxury magazine.
The location is subtly divided into two areas. The lounge area provides a comfortable custom designed dining experience filled with warm colors and sociable seating. Careful thought went into the layout of an open space while allowing adjustments to fit parties of most sizes while maintaining the privacy of each group. The decor is simple and elegant with a color scheme throughout to match the accent of the traditional Makisu; a bamboo tool used to roll maki.
The bar area provides the more casual diner with seating directly at the sushi bar or…if preferred, the liquor bar. With an extensive list of fine wines and premier sake garnished with real fruits, the flavor will definitely complement your palette. From your first sip, you will be satisfied by the brilliantly aromatic and complex flavors of our signature drinks.
At Makisu we buy only the finest ingredients and spare no expense to ensure quality and taste. Each ingredient is sourced from select marketplaces to provide freshness and an unbeatable flavor. This difference is immediately recognizable to the sushi connoisseur.
The result is an exotic paradise, the perfect setting for a culinary adventure. A fusion of traditional and contemporary Japanese cuisines with impeccable attention to detail noticeable in the presentation of every dish.
