About Kirei

Kirei (kee’ rai) means “beautiful” in Japanese – a sentiment that sets the tone for this neighborhood gem.

Located in the heart of Chicago’s Gold Coast, the menu features a carefully curated selection of modern shareable dishes that honor centuries-old Asian traditions for scratch cooking using fresh ingredients and handmade doughs accompanied by our own chef-created sauces, marinades, and broths.

From expertly prepared prime steaks and beautifully plated sushi rolls, sashimi and nigiri, to baos, hamachi, and pan-fried dumplings, Kirei offers a variety of carefully curated selections for elevated everyday dining.

Guests will enjoy a balance of tastes, textures, fragrances, and colors that enhance and accent each other.

The restaurant’s contemporary design is infused with subtle Asian influences to create an elegant-yet-casual respite for residents and out-of-town guests. Atrium seating on Delaware Place offers a dining experience like no other, and the intimate bar inspires both conversation and reflection.

In addition to our exceptional food, Kirei offers an extensive drink menu featuring wines, specialty cocktails, imported and local craft beer, along with a variety of sake. Join us for breakfast, dinner, or enjoy a taste of our bar menu.
