Chicago Restaurants




Yusho Review

Yes, it's Japanese, but a standard sushi-teriyaki spot this is not. Charlie Trotter's veteran Matthias Merges gives diners a cheffed-up look at contemporary Japanese cuisine with this hip Avondale yakitori joint. Most dishes are modestly priced and portioned to encourage sharing, including okonomiyaki (a savory omelet stuffed with blue prawn, cabbage, and chickpea) and twice-fried chicken with matcha (green tea) and lime, along with plenty of vegetarian-friendly dishes. Score a deal on Sunday with the Sunday Noodles special for $20, which includes a ramen, soba, or somen noodle dish, soft-serve ice cream, and beverage.

  • Chicago and Where Else

    We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.

    We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
