What the Food Critics are Saying

“Momotaro serves up some of the best Japanese-grilled robata in town. I especially loved the firm briny diver scallop ($12) coated in a bright citrus ponzu butter tossed with fat, salty orange bubbles of salmon roe, micro-slivers of seabean and custard-like hunks of uni (sea urchin) that tasted a bit like foie gras. There was actual foie gras rolled inside the washugyu, tiny caramelized roulades of skirt steak skewered alongside crispy shishito peppers.” – RedEye

“…try the aji yakusugi, which is jack mackerel smoked with ignited shavings from a 1,000-year-old cypress tree; the two-piece serving arrives under a lid, locking in the fragrance until the moment it's placed in front of you. It's a real treat. Also worthy are overlapping curls of shimaaji (horse mackerel) in a tiny puddle of dashi, and barely seared bonito alongside wakame sunomono, a tangy cucumber-seaweed salad.,, Hibachi dishes arrive at the table on a ceramic hibachi of still-glowing coals; King crab legs, split open for easy access, are very good, as is the duck breast, lightly cured and even more lightly smoked." – Chicago Tribune

“The Japanese obsession with itameshi, or Italian food, results in two superb mashups. One, a spool of spaghetti enriched with the egg of the free-range Jidori chicken, is tossed with tiny, spicy pollock roe that act as a delicate abrasive on the tongue. The other, a risotto-like pool of creamy, vividly orange-colored uni rice, is topped with a generous application of black truffle slices that perfumes the table's orbit with a fungal ambrosia. Uni appears on the menu seven times in similarly luxurious capacities. But such richness isn't limited to blatant cross-cultural experiments. The silky egg custardchawanmushu gets drenched in a murky truffled sauce with a dollop of sweet crabmeat in the middle. Extravagant accents like that pop up all over the menu." – Chicago Reader

Ambience

Designed by James Beard award-winning AvroKO, the 3-story space mixes western design and traditional Japanese forms to create a setting evocative of a postwar Tokyo office space. The main floor, with seating for 130, has at its center a buzzy, teak-paneled sushi bar and an open kitchen with robata grills on view. Upstairs, there’s a dramatic private room, and on the lower level, an izakaya, a cocktail-focused space inspired by the back alleys that sprang up in Tokyo as post-war black markets.
