Top New Restaurant in the World!

The Kurman team is at it again! We recently placed Wrigleyville's new restaurant, Shochu, in the Fall 2008 restaurant issue of Black Ink magazine. The issue, appropriately titled "Global Guide to What's New" showcases the newest and hottest restaurants around the world!

Shochu is listed in the Chicago favorites among upscale dining spots like C-House, Graham Elliot, L20 and Sixteen! Plus global faves like Jean-Georges Vongerichten's "Lagoon" in Bora Bora, John Burton-Race's "New Angel" in the U.K. and Gordon Ramsay's "London West Hollywood" in Los Angeles all made the mag's list.

According to the publisher, Ed Ventimiglia, "there are a myriad of new restaurant openings around the globe each year, only a select few delight the palate in such imaginative ways that they are destined to be classics." Huge props for Shochu after only being open for a few months.

Did we mention that Black Ink is a lifestyle magazine sent to American Express Centurion cardholders. To have this exclusive card, members must pay a one-time $5,000 invitation fee, plus an annual fee of $2,500 and annual spending of $250,000.
