Ramen-san's next omakase highlights Chef Kaze Chan's diversity and talent with two different experiences.
Ramen-san's Crab Omakase features five courses of the freshest crab in season. Seatings are extremely limited and will be available for $60 per person, plus tax (gratuity not included). Reservations can be made by visiting ramensan.com.
Chefs Craig Degel from Ramen-san and Jeremy Williams from Eataly's La Scoula team up for the monthly class series, "Eataly Amici," where the duo will work side-by-side to showcase the cultural differences of one dish made in two very different styles. In this demonstration class, students will be tasting "Noodles and Broth" in both the traditional Piemontese form of agnolotti in brodo and the not-so-Italian form of Tokushima Ramen. The class is Saturday, April 15, from 6:30 - 8:00 pm at Eataly's La Scoula.

This month’s Omakase pairs Chicago’s premier Nashville hot chicken guys, The Budlong, with Ramen-san’s kitchen crew for one incredible night of heat. The experience will be five fiery courses showcasing the coolest chiles from around the world, including those in Budlong’s Nashville Hot Chicken.
Dumplings may seem like a cool, new, creative (and usually cheap) food trend, but the veggie, dairy and meat-filled noodle pockets have been around for centuries (read: way before you ever picked up a chopstick).
A physician in Eastern Han Dynasty, Zhang Zhongjing is credited for inventing the dish. More than 1,800 years ago, he filled dough skins with cold-dispelling herbs and mutton, and cooked them for individuals who suffered from frozen or broken ears.
Sunday night is both the best and worst night of the week. Best because nobody is bothering you to go out drinking and you feel good knowing it’s acceptable to sit in your apartment all night. Worst because you’re already terrified thinking about that new project you put off for Monday morning. And if you’re still nursing a hangover? Good luck.
But none of that is any excuse to not have an excellent meal to cap off your weekend. And the good news is you can stay home in the comforts of your apartment. Here are our go-to spots for Sunday night delivery, all available on Caviar.
Join Ramen-san this month for its latest installment of the Omakase Dinner Series featuring Chef Won Kim of Bridgeport’s Kimski.

Limited tickets are available for $45 per person (plus tax; gratuity not included) and can purchased at ramensan.com.
Celebrate this year’s Bowl Game with some KFC – Korean Fried Chicken, that is. Taking a cue from Ramen-san’s own spicy chicken wings, these extra-crispy, Korean-style wings come in three different levels of heat and pair perfectly with blast-chilled Asahi beer. The championship game will also be projected onto the wall. Call 312-377-9950 or visit ramen-san.com to book your table today.
The year was fantastic for the Chicago Cubs, and one local restaurant encourages diners to relish in their greatest season one more time during the holidays. Another wants guests to revel in the season by doing a bit of karaoke after some liquid courage. Some ethnic delights range from Feast of the Seven Fishes to a Cuban-themed Christmas Eve dinner.
