San Franciscans were long envious of Oakland jazz lovers who had Yoshi's restaurant and nationally known jazz club at their doorstep. But with the 2007 opening of Yoshi's in San Francisco's slowly rising jazz district on the edge of Japantown, that envy became history. While talented musicians do their thing in a separate space, the equally talented chef Shotaro "Sho" Kamio serves a menu of pricey Japanese food, from tempura veal sweetbreads to large plates like beef brisket braised in miso and Cabernet with a miso-bordelaise sauce. There are also sashimi platters, classic nigiri choices, and Americanized sushi rolls like spicy dragon. The big, handsome restaurant harbors stylish booths, a sushi bar, small tables, a tatami room, a mezzanine lounge, and a bar. When funds are tight, you can order from the club-lounge menu in the bar, which has California rolls, spicy shrimp tempura, and an array of burgers.
