Tucked behind Intro in the Belden Stratford, Naoki Sushi offers straightforward, amazingly fresh sushi selections with some unique yummy twists like edamame guac dip. Relax in their simple and contemporary decor. Perhaps make a night of it at the Belden Stratford: cocktails at Intro, a cozy dinner at Naoki, and then night cap and dessert at the smallest full service bar in Chicago inside Mon Ami Gabi . Quite a delicious trifecta!

New to River North, and a favorite in my book, is Arbella. This swanky, lofty lounge offers a great happy hour with live DJ sets. Make sure to try their refreshing Tempo Bello cocktail, a grapefruit-infused gin drink with Luxardo and Tempus Fugit, and make sure to pair their polpo appetizer with some K.F.C (Korean fried chicken). You won’t regret it.
