First Look: Lucky Robot

Adam Weisberg, the man behind the healthy, budget-friendly Japanese chain Zen, is back with an innovative new restaurant called Lucky Robot,now open on South Congress. Inspired by the Japanese Harajuku culture, Lucky Robot features a bright neon décor and an elevated menu of Japanese street eats.  In addition to an expansive, revamped menu, the original concept features an iPad ordering system complete with nutritional information, detailed descriptions, and photos of each dish.

Fans of Zen’s budget friendly price points will be pleased to find Lucky Robot is still easy on the wallet (most entrées are around $10). While there are still a number of tasty, healthy options such as the spicy, bright ‘green machine’ seared albacore sashimi, there are also plenty of dishes such as the ‘rising sun’ pork belly-and-egg to feed those winter comfort cravings as well.
