So the husband and I decided to stop in to Shinto in Naperville on a random Wednesday afternoon for lunch. I was craving some hibachi and we've been here for dinner previously but decided to stop in for lunch. We were met by our wonderful host Tyler who was not only our host but is also the bartender or shall I say the alchemist. Tyler was warm, welcoming, super attentive and very informative. I noted I have a hard shellfish allergy and he immediately stopped and closed our table off as to have no other patrons come to sit with us to avoid any cross contamination which is a huge plus! *(This single-handedly killed all reservations that I had in regards to eating hibachi because I've had my fair share of EpiPen required visits by going to other hibachi restaurants but this one hands down gave me first class service just for that little tidbit but back to my review*). Tyler went over the menu options and thoroughly informed about the options for lunch and the difference, not just in regards to the portion size, but also what comes together versus separate options for lunch which was great! Our food was prepared effortlessly the show that we got tableside was amazing! The chef was talkative, jokeful and light we had a really great lunch! To accompany our lunch of course we wanted a drink and we asked Tyler for his recommendations. He gave us both vodka as well as tequila options and the husband and I decided to go with one of each. His detail description of how the spirits pair with the juices and other catalysts that makes these drinks unique was so intriguing within itself we couldn't wait for our drinks to arrive table side. Tyler went to the bar and brought out his magic wand and was back within 5 minutes with the best tasting drinks I've had in a very long time * including the ones I make myself*. So round two was upon us before we knew it... The husband decided to go with tequila with me for his second ...Tyler brought the husbands drink along with the 1st of two drinks were would get to try which he invented. I'm not sure exactly what was in it but I do know it was tequila base but it was sooo scrumptious! He said it was a shot but I can tell you without any denial that was an entire drink and it was simply amazing! While waiting on our to go order here comes Tyler back with a pink starburst inspired cocktail and again amazing. I inquired whether he went to school for alchemy like a scientist previously and he said no that he just enjoyed trying to pair different items together to bring back childhood nostalgic treats and savory and sweet options as well. When I tell you the husband and I left from Shinto full and tipsy it was a great afternoon! So Thursdays and Fridays and we have a new spot to go to not only for the tasty food, great conversation and lively ambience but also to see what else Tyler has concocted with his mad scientist alchemy train brain! I give Shinto on route 59 a 10 out of 10 Please go ask for Tyler and tell him Lesley sent you... I'll see you if you're there on a Thursday or Friday Great job you guys! Tyler!!!! AMAZING JOB!
