A colleague was raving about this tiny sushi spot in Lincoln Park last week, so I decided to check into it.
If you can get over the lackluster service, you're certain to be impressed by the rolls at Green Tea Japanese Restaurant (2206 N. Clark St., 773-883-8812), with nothing really over $6. The food here is super fresh, including starters like the edamame and oshinko, or Japanese pickles. Then you can move on to delightful rolls like the spicy tuna, avocado, smoked salmon or shittake mushroom.
With only 17 seats, most customers prefer to do take out or delivery, but if you decide to stay, we recommend taking a nice bottle of sake or pinot noir.
