Anniversary at Momotaro
We celebrated Chicago’s reopening and our anniversary at Momotaro in West Loop. We booked through OpenTable and indicated the anniversary celebration; everyone mentioned it and we got a keepsake anniversary menu! Our waiter gave us a nice detailed overview of the menu and was helpful in pointing out dishes he recommended. Cocktails were good, and the sushi was spot on. Is it lame if I say my favorite was the otoro? We got the chef’s recs nigiri plate – like omakase though not one at a time (there were only a few seats at the sushi bar). Felt safe, staff wore masks, and there were glass dividers and it wasn’t too crowded. Dessert was absolutely amazing – chocolate tarte with a crackle piece and hazelnut crumble that was amazing. They also gave us a free anniversary dessert pop, which was really nice, though I found it kind of doughy. Service was great, fast water refills. Ran us $300, but I had a great time.
