In Japan, It Means Circle.

In life, it stands for the moment in which your mind is free for the body or spirit to create.

In Chicago, it is a place where you can sit back and relax in the presence of good company and good food. The philosophy behind the name allows us to give back to Chicago in a way where dining is not just about putting food into your system because you’re supposed to. It’s about satisfying your hearts desires through the palate. It’s fulfilling your taste buds with complementary flavors that absorb into your well-being and make you feel good about yourself. We build on the fundamentals of Japanese ingredients with our own personality. And present to you – ENSO Sushi & Bar.

BYOB Policy

We offer a full bar with hand-crafted cocktails, craft beers, premium sake, and eclectic wines at competitive and very affordable prices. But we also welcome those who prefer the BYOB aspect of Chicago dining. To cover our costs while still providing an enjoyable experience, we have the following rules for BYOB:

  • Please only bring wine & beer ( No hard liquor or sake ).

  • There is a $10 corkage fee for each bottle of wine & 6 pack of beer.

  • All party members must eat something while enjoying your bottle. We practice responsible service and want everyone to be safe while consuming alcohol.
