“If you know sushi in Chicago, then you know Ukrainian Village’s Arami is a serious power player,” 312 Dining Diva says. Frankly we’re a little shaken by this notion that there is a power struggle going on in the sushi world; we go to Arami to zen out at the bar watching chef B.K. Park’s consummate skill with the sushi knife, it’s kind of alarming to think that Rahm Emanuel may suddenly turn up next to us, demanding some fucking swordfish milt— now!— to recharge his mojo for tough negotiations with the police unions or something. (If you want to see Park in zen-action, check out his Key Ingredient episode.) Anyway, 312 Dining Diva reports a very solidly sourced anonymous rumor that the owners of Arami are planning a second location around The Shops at North Bridge (ie., near The Purple Pig and P.F. Chang’s), and potentially others down the road. The kitchen menu may be easily replicable; the experience of Park precisely slicing your dinner in front of you, not so easy, so we’ll be curious to see how this idea of rolling out multiple Aramis plays out.
