Innovative Dining Group (IDG) is set to open a new Katana outpost soon in Chicago. A welcome addition to the mid-west, Katana already has a presence in Scottsdale, Arizona, Abu Dabi, and Dubai.
As posted here in Eater Chicago, restaurant equipment provided by Shambra Restaurant Consulting has already arrived on site. Over 13,000 square feet, the space will feature a stand-alone robata bar, a sushi bar, and a premium sake bar. The back of house kitchen includes a 25-foot long custom stainless steel chef's counter in addition to the full cookline.
Here's a sneak preview of the chef's counter.
