Congratulations to Cristina Grieco on winning our 142nd High Five Giveaway and thank you to all who entered!
Our next High Five Giveaway is for a $50 gift certificate to Slurping Turtle.
Acclaimed chef Takashi Yagihashi — the force behind Bucktown’s Michelin-starred Takashi, who is also a James Beard Foundation Best Chef: Midwest award winner — is behind this River North restaurant.The light-hearted name’s a nod to the “Happy Slurping” slogan on servers’ T-shirts during Sunday noodle service at Takashi, combined with the fact that the turtle is a symbol of luck and longevity in Japan. Located on the first floor of a seven-story building, the eatery will offer sashimi, noodle dishes, Japanese grill items and steamed shumai and other dumplings. The menu also includes small plate picks such as fried oysters and duck fat-fried chicken, along with wine, beer and sake. Save room for macaroons, cream puffs and black sesame ice cream for dessert. – Metromix
