New Feature!



Japonais is a contemporary Japanese restaurant. The ambiance exudes a laid back yet sophisticated and authentic atmosphere. Its outdoor dining with plush pillows, cabanas and floor lamps all along Chicago's Riverfront is a hot place to see and to be seen on warm days and nights. Foodwise it's most known for its "Rock" appetizer, thinly sliced marinated New York strip where diners can cook themselves on a hot rock presentation. Fans love the lobster spring rolls with a mango relish and blood orange glaze or the Hawaiian Hamachi with thinly sliced Yellowtail in a sesame soy yuzu vinaigrette as appetizers.
