has been brought to life by the creators of sushi wabi, which was located directly across the street from our current address, 823 W. Randolph Street. DOKKU boasts a cult following due to the trust the owners have developed with their guests over the years.
The sushi chef team ranks sustainability of fish among its top priority and our diners can rest assure they are getting the finest and freshest fish on the market. Quality and creative presentation are two key components of our sushi style.
The menu is incredibly diverse and ranges from delicate sashimi cuts, to creative nigiri bites and maki rolls, to a Japanese inspired filet mignon for the non-sushi eater in the group.
What does “dokku” mean?
Dokku directly translates to “dock”‘ in Japanese. The inspiration was to evoke sushi in its simplest form, when fish that was caught and eaten sashimi-style, on the dock. Fish so fresh that you can taste the sea. At Sushi Dokku, it’s all about the fish.
Where did you get the fish prints on the menu?
The prints are called Gyotaku, a Japanese art form that originates with fishermen. While out at sea, they would pull their catch and press them to paper, in order to record the size. Today, artists use ink or paint and transfer the fish to paper or cloth. Our gyotaku are from Art by Dwight Hwang, Fishing for Gyotaku.
