Earlier, I posted something about aja (660 N. State St.), the Asian-influenced steakhouse going into the new Dana Hotel and Spa.
Now, I've got even more info from their publicist:
"Opening early June, aja will offer the precision of Asian cuisine with the robust flavors of a modern steakhouse. The bold, progressive menu will offer a number of top-quality specialty cuts from authentic Japanese Kobe beef prepared by the ounce to artisan-raised beef and pork offered alongside yakitori, premium sushi and a boutique, savvy sake list. A modern, sophisticated restaurant, aja will feature two fireplaces and a second level 'floating' sushi bar, ideal for intimate meals and small gatherings. aja will offer breakfast, lunch and dinner."
Also during the summer, the hotel will unveil its rooftop lounge, Vertigo, which should give NoMI, Peninsula and Conrad Chicago some competition when it opens in August.
