Venue Info

Located in Lincoln Park, Toro Sushi is a tiny, BYOB sushi joint that’s notorious for always having a wait. But it’s worth it. Toro is family run -- owned by Chef Mitch Kim -- aiding in its neighborhood feel and welcoming atmosphere. The fish is fresh, the cuts are thick, the maki are signature -- categorized under Mitch’s Special Rolls -- all at an affordable price. And because not everyone likes sushi (we were surprised, too), there’s various tempura options, gyoza, and jalapeño poppers, all of which are equally as popular and affordable.
