Jim Bee (Sai Cafe) brings sushi in elegant digs to Logan Square.
Jim Bee of Sai Cafe brings sushi to Logan Square with this spot just south of the boulevard. The menu's extensive: soups and salads, hot and cold appetizers (we enjoyed gyoza, panfried pork dumplings served with a slightly spicy dipping sauce), rice and noodle dishes, plus sashimi and cooked options. The sushi's superfresh, from basics like tuna to a "fashion" maki (tuna, shrimp, avocado, mayo, fish eggs, and cucumber) and more inventive options such as the excellent Spicy White Tuna Crunch. You can also order individual nigiri; I'm a sucker for unagi, and this was some of the best I've ever had. The ice cream sampler offered tasty little domes of green tea, lychee, and red bean ice cream meant to be eaten with a toothpick spear. Hachi's also has a nice selection of wines available by the bottle and the glass and a very satisfying house sake.
