Blufish Vernon Hills opened in December 2015.
Locals have lovingly welcomed our restaurant to the Lake County sushi scene, and the Vernon Hills location has quickly earned a loyal following. The menu at Vernon Hills has expanded and evolved on Blufish's signature dishes. Many of the new appetizers feature sushi connoisseurs' favorite cuts of fish--o-toro, madai, and zuke sake to name a few. Blufish Vernon Hills also offers an omakase, a chef's tasting course, with an optional sake or wine pairing.

Perhaps the greatest renovation to the Blufish experience is at the bar at Vernon Hills. The white quartz-top bar is lit from within and the new signature cocktail list consists of many different styles of spirits. The James Dean, cocoa-infused bourbon old fashioned is a must-try, as is the Bermuda Triangle, a spicy organic mango jalapeƱo margarita.

Every plate and every glass has been
thoughtfully hand picked by the executive chef.

The team at Vernon Hills devotes itself to providing
a unique dining experience through our modern
interpretation of traditional Japanese cuisine at its finest.
