Introducing: The "Rahm Emanu-Roll"

While former Sushi Wabi executive chef Worachai "Chao" Thapthimkuna and his business partner Mike Schatzman are putting the final touches on Chicago's first kushiyaki, Union Sushi + BBQ Bar in River North, for its planned May opening, they are letting out little teases of what they have planned on youtube, their website (Mike and Chao Chow), and on their entertaining Twitter feed.

Here's one dish, a sushi roll named in honor of our Mayor-elect. So now the Countdown to Rahmageddon has spawned a sushi roll and a cocktail. Looks like the key to get through the early days of the Emanuel Administration is to do it on a full stomach and buzzed.

Union Sushi + BBQ Bar is slated to open in May at 230 W. Erie.
