Friends of mine recommended this place to my boyfriend and I a couple of months ago and ever since we've been by at least once a month. I LOVE IT. The food and drinks are killer, the ambiance is perfect and the service is top notch. Everything is delicious and I would tell you all my favorites but it changes so often I doubt it would be helpful. Usually we just ask the waiters to recommend what's best and share a few different plates. Can't wait for my next trip.

Go for the Ramen Brunch on sunday. 20 bucks gets you one of a variety of authentic, complex ramens (I prefer the maitake mushroom ramen with the angry red ball). In addition, you get a draft cocktail (usually something gin-y) and an incredible soft serve with something weird on it like corn or seaweed.

The decor here is great, and the food matches. Not you average Japanese place, but not just "fusion", either. While the vegetarian options are a bit limited, there are enough to keep you full. I really enjoyed the maitake mushrooms. The cocktails here are good as well to make for a really enjoyable experience.

After visiting State Bird Provisions in San Francisco this summer, and revisiting Yusho just recently, I found myself noticing endless similarities between the two--though I also found myself preferring Yusho for friendly service and not-too-cozy quarters--just right. Inventive and delicious asian-inspired small plates in an atmosphere filled with objects of interest and clever, seasonal-inspired decor. I loved the special--grilled hamachi collar served with peanut sauce and an unforgettable (non-dairy!) coconut cream and ginger coleslaw.

Yusho is a different type of Japanese restaurant, for those who want to go further Sushi, Teriyaky or bento boxes, Yusho offers great Yakitori Japanese food for a great price and in beautiful Logan Square.

I'm thrilled to have this place as my next door neighbor. The menu has a huge range of offerings that always seem to be updated. The cocktails are some of the best in the city, and the staff will take you on a guided tour through their proud collection of sake. No stone has been left unturned with your experience here, and is well worth the visit off the beaten path for those a bit further east.


Yusho hasn't shared anything with you.

People are more likely to share with you if you add them to your circles.
