Portions are large and prices are low at this north-side Japanese restaurant where kimono-clad servers greet you at the door. Many patrons are devoted to sushi chef Roberto Pina, who gained a following during his tenure at the now-defunct Benkay Room in the Hotel Nikko. He sends out complimentary oshinko (pickled vegetables) as a starter, then demonstrates his sushi skills with fresh, generously sized pieces of nigiri and maki sushi. Four private tatami rooms line one wall of the restaurant, but they fill up early (and are the only places in the restaurant where smoking is allowed), so book ahead. Midori also features karaoke every night.
