Yugen in Chicago’s West Loop offers contemporary Japanese cuisine

Restaurants come and go all the time, but it was a surprise in the food community when Grace suddenly shut its doors last year in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood. A legal dispute between the chef, GM and owner led to a high-profile vacancy.

However, a new restaurant called Yugen opened in the space by an all-female executive team, including the pastry chef and led by a chef with deep Chicago culinary roots.
