Pumpkin Mochi is Back on the Menu!

Pumpkin Mochi is Back on the Menu Tonight
…and Even Better than Before! 
There are only a handful of good things that come with the cooling of the weather. Accessorizing with jackets, roaring fires, and Pumpkin Mochi Cake at Union Sushi + Barbeque Bar.

Last year’s hit went into hibernation for the warmer months, and now has come back even more delicious. Chef Chao has outdone himself…and the results are crave-able. Think hollowed out Pumpkin Cake, filled with rich, cream cheese ice cream, smothered in caramel sauce and garnished with pumpkin seed brittle. The result is sweet, rich, savory, crunchy, cinnamon-y…and just plain good. Make a Reservation

A Sake Tasting for Insiders…Meet Japan’s Mr. Sho Nagai, President of Mizbasho Sake Brewery

And you thought you knew sake…

Meet Mr. Sho Nagai, President of Japan’s Mizbasho Sake Brewery, for an Exclusive Tasting Event on Monday, September 10, 2012 at 7 p.m. 

It doesn’t get much cooler than this in sake circles…the “insider” street cred involved with drinking sake with Mr. Nagai is comparable to shooting some hoops with Michael Jordan, or trying on shoes as Mr. Choo himself helps you…

In other words…it’s going to be fun. So don’t miss it!

We’re going to be gathering at UpBar on Monday night at 7 p.m.   Join us as we taste a variety of sakes from the Mizbasho Sake Brewery, including a 3-year aged sake and a series of sparkling sake.  

chaoChef Chao will be passing a variety of hors d’oeuvres, each perfectly paired to compliment the starring sakes. 

This special evening will be $40 per person, (not inclusive of tax and tip,) and your space can be reserved by calling  312-662-4888 or email us  info@eatatunion.com.

We’ll see you on Monday, Sake Cheers!

HOW WE ROLL: CHICAGO BEACH POLO WORLD CUP

RollLikeAVIP
This summer has been, yes, pretty hot, a little stormy… but fun as hell. Somewhere between cocktails at UpBar, heating things up in the kitchen, and tweeting ’til our fingers were numb, the summer seems to have passed us by… but it’s not over yet.

We’ve done it again, friends. Mike, Chao, and the crew at Union Sushi + Barbeque Bar are conquering what might just be the final frontier of beach season. It’s an event—a way of life, really—that’s as dangerous as it is exotic, steeped in history and sand, brought to Chicago this year for the very first time. Yes, it’s beach polo.

We are very proud to announce that Union Sushi + Barbeque Bar is an official sponsor of the Chicago Beach Polo World Cup 2011, so obviously we’re celebrating with some free VIP tickets.

Cocktail Profile:Yamato Sling

 

cocktailprofileyamatosling1The perfect place to try the subject of our latest cocktail profile? UpBar, of course! Our newly launched lounge, set in the upstairs mezzanine, is home to hand-crafted cocktails, 26 sakes, and (of course) some Asian-inspired
finger food and bar snacks.

But, as usual, we’re getting carried away from the topic at
hand: our next cocktail profile. No matter where you’re sipping the Yamato Sling, it’s tasty as hell. It’s sultry
& spicy enough for UpBar, yet delectable as a pre-dinner cocktail downstairs. As a matter of fact, it’s one of Revae’s favoritecocktails on the menu…

Cocktail Profile: Surprise and Delight

cocktailprofilesurpriseanddelightFor the next installment of our cocktail profiles (call it UpBar’s liquored-up version of Facebook), we’re very excited to present to you all Surprise & Delight.In short, think prevalent (but not overpowering) cucumber flavors plus the sweetness of a lemongrass and strawberry muddle. Combine that with a waft of mint and a hint of bubble, and sip away.

While it’s definitely a ‘summery’ drink, we’re pretty sure it would taste just as delicious without the 80º+ weather—but that’s just us.
