YŪGEN REPRESENTS AN EVOCATIVE
CONCEPT IN THE JAPANESE LANGUAGE,
"THE POWER TO CONJURE INDESCRIBABLE APPRECIATION FOR THE SIMPLICITY OF BEAUTY."
YŪGEN EXECUTIVE CHEF
This fall, an impressive women-led team will bring Yūgen—a modern-fine dining experience—to Chicago’s premier dining district at 652 W. Randolph St. Helmed by Executive Chef Mari Katsumura, the restaurant will feature contemporary Japanese cuisine in a striking, reimagined space.
Joining Katsumura in the kitchen is rising pastry star Jeanine Lamadieu, coming to Yūgen after working at the world renowned Le Bernadin (New York) and the Michelin-rated Smyth + The Loyalist (Chicago). As Pastry Chef, Lamadieu will collaborate closely with Katsumura to present a dessert menu that captures the restaurant’s contemporary Japanese vision.
Also integral to the team is a fresh face in hospitality: General Manager and fellow female powerhouse Morgan Olszewski. Olszewski contributes to Yūgen’s creative vision and leads the restaurant’s day-to-day business operations. The daughter of financial investor and Co-Owner Michael Olszewski, she carries an MBA from Loyola University of Chicago and brings versatile experience in micro-enterprise consulting, business statistics analysis and management.
