Could Kaze be Kaput?

| No Comments

This would be so sad if it happened, since it's such a great restaurant with amazing food, but according to a report from Crain's Chicago Business, a spat between the owners of Roscoe Village's Kaze could spell the end of the run for this popular sushi spot.

"Macku Chan, Kaze Sushi's executive chef, accused Andre Williams and Manifest Destiny LLC of breach of contract and using company money - at least $650,000 - for personal expenses," Crain's said. "Mr. Williams contends he has done nothing wrong and that the money he withdrew from Manifest Destiny was to reimburse him for the capital he personally invested to get the restaurant off the ground."

Kaze, 2032 W. Roscoe St., opened in 2004. It was named one of the country's top 10 sushi spots in the April edition of Bon Appetit magazine.
