New Favorite: Friendship Chinese Restaurant
Several months ago I bought a Groupon for Friendship Chinese Restaurant in Logan Square. John had eaten there a couple of years ago for his work holiday party and raved about how good it was, so I thought I should see if it held to my picky standards. Scott and Steph joined us as well, and I can say that we all were very impressed. I'm not a sushi eater, but the restaurant just hired a sushi chef who used to be Peter Jennings' personal sushi chef and who also worked for several other celebs. I can't say how it tasted, but it looked awesome (the sushi eaters at the table said it was great). There is a serious shortage of Chinese food in the city -- the asian cuisine market seems to be taken up by Thai restaurants -- so this was definitely a welcome find! The neighborhood was kind of iffy, but I did some research and saw that there is another location in Streeterville right on the lake. The lake front location has an outdoor deck, so we will definitely have to hit that location up once the weather is nicer.
