Mr. Maki menu items revealed for the upcoming Streeterville teishoku (combo meals) restaurant
Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises, which is bringing teishoku (Japanese combo meal) to Streeterville, has announced more project details. Mr. Maki, from the team that created Lettuce concepts Sushi-San and Ramen-San, will open this spring in the space that once housed Tru (676 N. St. Clair St.)
Teishoku are set meals — combo platters, if you will, but portioned for individuals — typically combining miso soup, side dishes and a main protein on one large plate. At Mr. Maki, guests will select a main course (teriyaki, maki roll, stir-fried noodles), which will come with miso soup, salad and fried vegetables. There also will be an a la carte menu of maki rolls (the full menu, we’re told, is still a work in progress).
Mr. Maki’s 64 seats and 8-seat bar take up about half of the original Tru space; the other half belongs to the Streeterville location of Ramen-San (165 E. Huron St.), whose entrance is around the corner.
The restaurant will be open for lunch and dinner. Carryout available; delivery service will be added down the road.
