It’s a club? It’s a lounge? It’s Katana, Chicago’s newest robata and sushi bar. Katana – a restaurant – is coming to River North. This upscale eatery promises sushi, hot and cold dishes, and boundless sake, with an emphasis on Robatayaki.

Robatayaki, in Japanese, means “fireside cooking;” Katana will offer dishes, like steaks, seafood, vegetables, and more, grilled on skewers over hot charcoal. According to Innovative Dining Group, the company’s aim is to “honor… old style cooking with a menu featuring ‘Japanese Tapas’ (appetizers) and other traditional styles of Japanese comfort food.”

Katana also aims to bring its brand of cosmopolitan flair to the neighborhood. The 300-seat restaurant will feature its noted sleek design and “cutting-edge” attention to architecture.

This location, in the Windy City, will be the third Katana by Innovative Dining Group, the operating company based in Hollywood, California. The other two are situated on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, California and in Dubai – yes, that Dubai – in United Arab Emirates.

Katana’s opening at 339 North Dearborn Street is slated for this summer.
