Your parents are visiting from Iowa and they want to see what you’ve been up to in the neighborhood. Check out Sai, a quiet sushi restaurant in Lincoln Park that’s been around for over 20 years. They have non-sushi options, like chicken/beef/fish teriyaki and noodle dishes, in addition to raw fish, and the friendly service and relaxed environment make it a great spot to hang out with Mom and Dad while they try guilt you into moving back home.
