Yoshi's Café

Critic’s Notes

chef Yoshi, welcomes you to this beloved neighborhood institution. The global cuisine runs from octopus ceviche with corn and ponzu sauce to grilled Korean-style skirt steak salad to a whole roasted Japanese kabocha filled with sautéed vegetables and tofu. Chiboust (light pastry cream) infused with poached peaches is a highlight of the elegant dessert tray. Smooth service. Three-course $25 menu on Thursdays.
