SUMI Robata Bar

Welcome to Sumi Robata Bar, an authentic Japanese Robatayaki that takes pride on being natural, focused and creative. Sumi, derives from the Japanese word for charcoal, which focuses on the tradition and skill of Robata grilling.

Come watch the industry leader of this segment of cuisine, Chef Gene Kato as he mesmerizes you as he grills the highest quality ingredients over Japanese charcoal. The menu at Sumi Robata Bar, is anchored by a variety of dishes from the Robata grill, enhanced by traditional cold and hot Japanese appetizers. Sumi’s elegant and subtle design reflects charcoal in its purest form, with a focus on natural materials including stone and bamboo. Be sure to take a seat along the Robata counter and see how he methodically seasons bits of skewered flesh and vegetable to perfection. The small plates of astonishing elegance will take your breath away with each bite.

Enjoy the artistry of Chef Gene Kato at Sumi Robata Bar.

"Sumi has become one of my favorite Chicago Restaurants. Sit at the counter if you are just a few people. My favorites are the Japanese sliders, the Wagyu Rib-eye, the Sukiyaki and the Lamb Chop. If you are a beer drinker try the Orion. Great food quality, always consistent and the service is friendly."

"It is as good as any of the Shimbashi area bars in Tokyo where the "salaryman" goes for drinks and a snack after work. All the small plates we tried were excellent. If you treat it as a dinner restaurant it is still excellent but not cheap."

"This is a very nice and hidden gem in the neighborhood. I love it's quiet feelings and descent inferior setting. Customer service is awesome! Our server is very friendly and attentive. The tofu desert is a must try! We are not satisfied with the grilled vegetables though. If you like to have someone do the barbecue work for you, this is the place!"

"We got there 24 minutes before our reserved time. We were asked if we wanted to sit by the bar or have a table. We said table and we were told to wait 10minutes so we said, oh ok-perhaps we will sit at the bar then since we can see that there are plenty of empty seats but we got the same response, still a 10 minute wait since we arrived early. I got curious and took a look at the dining area-surprise, plenty of vacant table as well!!! So strange that they would rather have you stand for 10minutes by their door. Food is ok. You will smell like you were the one grilling your food after your meal."
