Private Dining & Catering

Steps away from Michigan Avenue, blocks away from the Loop and seconds away from Chicago’s premier hotel destinations, River North’s Sushi Taiyo offers Chicago’s guests, professionals, and those that call Chicago home, a taste of traditional sushi and contemporary Asian cuisine. Executive Chef Ming San, brings his extraordinary knowledge of Asian cuisine to Sushi Taiyo, with his expertly crafted dishes that have combined simple yet complex flavors, to provide its diners with innovative Asian cuisine, rich in classic flavor.

Sushi Taiyo’s bi-level restaurant and lounge is divided into an inviting and first level dining room, which leads upstairs to the sprawling second floor sister restaurant and sake bar, Izkaya Hapa.  Izakaya Hapa, is the Asian counterpart to the American version of the gastro pub, as the name literally translates to Japanese pub that serves East meets West-style tapas. Izakaya Hapa’s second floor locale exudes casual elegance and warmth, which also doubles as the restaurant’s private event space.

With wrap-around, floor to ceiling windows that that provide a peek into the energy of the Magnificent Mile, the second floor dining room provides an excellent backdrop for both social and corporate events. This unique space accommodates up to 350 guests, as well as allows access to a private bar. For a more intimate affair, guests are able to utilize the private dining room, which accommodates up to 35 guests.  A complete restaurant buy-out accommodates 400 guests.

Sushi Taiyo’s informative event team is well versed in executing the perfect event from inception to completion, for parties of 4 to 400. Sushi Taiyo is pleased to accommodate the tastes and budgets of all guests, through the capabilities to design customized menu selections and pairings.

In addition to the extensive food and beverage options, Sushi Taiyo will work closely with its guests to provide AV equipment, music, security and internet, as available and needed.

Sushi Taiyo and Izakaya Hapa invite its guests to experience an exceptional Asian dining experience, delivered by its signature style and distinct menu items, designed especially to please all palates. The restaurants are owned by long-time Chicago restaurateurs, Jeff Zhang and Sandy Yu, who also brought Rise Sushi & Sake Lounge and Shine Asian Cuisine and Sushi Bar to Chicago.
