Yūgen, Chicago, IL

Yūgen Restaurant Review

: Yūgen, with chef Mari Katsumura at the helm, is named for the Japanese concept of conjuring the indescribable appreciation for the simplicity of beauty. The fine dining establishment marries Katsumura's heritage and French cuisine. A tasting menu is offered in the dining room, while Kaisho is a different space with its own menu.
