The LA-based Innovative Dining Group held a star-studded opening for the new Robatayaki-style Japanese restaurant (339 N. Dearborn) Aug. 3. Fashion designer Tadashi Shoji dressed VIP hosts, and more than 500 guests were in attendance, including “Chicago Fire” actors Christian Stolte and Eamonn Walker, former Chicago Bull Jimmy Butler and “Hamilton” star Chris Lee. Throughout the night, partygoers sipped on specialty cocktails and enjoyed sushi and skewers.
