Green Tea Two thumbs up

This is great, inexpensive sushi in Lincoln Park. I can't believe I haven't known about this place until now. The shrimp maki special is lovely. There are like 5 tables and no reservations so plan wisely (and only go with one or two others).
Just came up from air after crazy academic year and now I am frantic to have as many delicious meals as possible before leaving Chicago - for Milwaukee but still :(
I will be searching the boards this summer!
Funny that you mention Green Tea -- it is my (only) reliable go-to Lincoln Park sushi stop. None of the crazy wait times like you get up the street at Sushi Toro, and more bang-for-your buck than Ponzu or some of the other places on Clark.
The Salmon Don is outstanding -- my dining companion spent some time in Asia and says its presentation is closest to the real deal that he's seen in the States. Green Tea's staff is friendly and accommodating and, as would be expected, sitting at the bar and watching the knife skills in action is a thrill in and of itself.

Green Tea has a *fantastic* lunch price for the chirashi.The dinner chirashi is slightly more and includes a few more pieces.
