Finally got a chance to try Kansaku (Citysearch page with their menu, I couldn’t find their site), the newest up-scale-ish Evanston sushi place. Decent enough for lunch. Not spectacular, but holds its own against most choices in its range. I’d put Dozika and Koi (stupid music warning) both slightly above it for sushi quality and value, but nowhere near Kuni’s for quality or Sea Ranch for value.

I had the Kansaku lunch combo, which came with miso soup and a don katsu (battered pork) appetizer, which was very tasty.
