AJI in Northalsted, Chicago is an intimate culinary experience honoring Japanese Tradition.
An experience is what we offer. An unforgettable experience of your senses. Our 14 course meal is perfectly complimented with great music, ambiance, charming service and sourced in quality, seasonality, and freshness. With different items and combinations being served everyday, no two experiences will be the same.
Our modern-industrial space respects our natural elements with wood finishes and platters. Guests are seated at a large omakase counter with our chefs preparing each course in front of you. Throughout your dining experience, our chefs will walk you through each course and its significance in your omakase journey.
Led by executive chef Kristian Cho and Matthew Baluyut, AJI’s culinary team brings over three decades of sushi experience in some of the most prestigious restaurants. By combining a passion for sushi and a dedication to service, AJI delivers a menu that challenges your tastebuds and comforts you on the banks of Japan at the same time.
