Michael Sinensky and Erika London of simplevenue—the team behind New York’s Sushi Suite 1001 and the Sushi Suite in the former Versace Mansion in Miami—have brought Sushi Suite 202 to the Hotel Lincoln in Chicago.
The sushi suite speakeasy is located in a 500-square-foot guestroom at the hotel and features warm wood millwork and jewel-toned velvet furniture with a touch of Japanese flair. A six-seat cocktail bar is cast in stone and finished with a solid wood top. The main lounge seating area is set up like a living room, with small side tables for drinks and cushioned ottomans for flexible seating. The main attraction, the six-seat sushi bar, is tucked into the back of the suite where the bed once was.
During the experience, guests are offered a 17-course, 60-minute omakase sushi dinner, spearheaded by Executive Chef Kin Wangchuk. The suite also showcases a self-service sake vending machine.
