Sunda, opening to the public on Monday, March 9 at 110 W. Illinois in River North, is at the vanguard of America’s New-Asian cuisine movement. Helmed by renowned Executive Chef Rodelio Aglibot, known as the “Food Buddha” to international media, Sunda showcases contemporary and progressive interpretations of traditional dishes from Japan, China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines and the rest of the Southeast Asian Island region. The surprising, simple, flavorful dishes are served and shared while a full sushi bar will service an assortment of sushi, sashimi and nigiri options. Sunda’s beverage program revolves around a progressive list of premium sakes, an assembly of Asian beers, a well-rounded list of Champagnes, sparkling wines, white wines and red wines and an ever-changing seasonal cocktail list. The chic space, designed by award-winning restaurant and hotel designer Tony Chi, seats more than 200 guests and is a spectacular combination of innovative yet comforting design in which delicious authentic New Asian cuisine is served at accommodating prices, where each guest can choose the level of their dining experience from a myriad of menu options.
