Sushi on the State/Rush restaurant strip

Restaurant, Bar

Ra is a sushi place plus bar in the State/Rush restaurant zone in the Gold Coast. It also serves a other Japanese-style entrees. The decor is on the trendy/hip inspiration end of things, and it gets loud and full quickly. Outdoor seating is available during the summer. The bar is open to 2:00 a.m. nightly.

A couple of veg-friendly options are on the menu, including the standard vegetable tempura. Very little to none of the sushi is veg-friendly. When in doubt, ask.

Ra Sushi has very little for vegans except the most basic kind of avocado or cucumber sushi rolls (or, as I like to say, the Japanese equivalent of iceberg lettuce salads at steakhouses). The bar area is pretty nice, though, and I like the decor. Be warned that their mixed drinks are pretty strong and not particularly well-mixed, in my opinion. The service was friendly.

If you happen to be in the area, this might be a good place for a late-night drink, as all the other bars in the neighborhood seem to be wood-paneled Irish pubs.

This place is so close to where I stay in Chicago that I really wanted to like it. Unfortunately the attitude of the staff was about as mediocre as the food (very limited veggie options)...won't return soon.
