About Us

Located along the up and coming expanse of Wicker Park’s West Division street, Bob-San offers a
variety of authentic Japanese cuisine seven days a week for dinner.

Only recently opening its doors in August 2000, Bob-San has already established a large following
of young professionals favoring traditional Japanese fare in an upscale, and inviting environment.

With attention to every dining detail and service that is second to none, patrons can expect a level of
hospitality that reflects an exemplary Japanese tradition. While dining, undertones of classic and
contemporary music are played just below the buzz of table conversations to create a mellow atmosphere.

Bob Bee, prominent Chicago restaurateur and owner of Bob-San relies on more than 10 years of culinary
expertise and his staff of chefs skilled in the preparation of sushi. With every
appetizing creation, their goal is to exceed even your greatest expectations with delicious appetizers,
entrees and desserts for an unforgettable dining experience.

Bob-San is owner Bob Bee’s third restaurant endeavor in the Chicago area. After leaving his first
restaurant, Sai Café, he opened Sushi Naniwa, in 1992. Located in the trendy River North area, Sushi Naniwa
is located on Wells Street, between Ohio and Ontario Streets.

Looking to broaden the appeal of Japanese food to a younger and more diverse clientele, Bob-San promises
to be as successful as Sushi Naniwa. Come join us for an evening of good food and great hospitality here
at Bob-San.
