Yuzu Sushi and Robata Grill is a BYOB Japanese-inspired spot in West Town where the team has combined great food with creativity and a trendy industrial décor. The highlight definitely is the Yuzu Jumbo sushi rolls which come with art made out of colourful sauces – some of these pay homage to Chicago with patterns like the flag of Chicago or the Navy Pier.
Since it is a sushi and robata grill, the menu includes special Yuzu rolls which come with art, ordinary rolls, sashimi sushi and really tasty appetizers like Brussels sprouts and tater tots with a Japanese twist. Yuzu also offers Japanese grills skewers called Robata and my favourites are the beef short ribs, pork shoulder and shishito peppers. Yuzu is also one of the BYOB restaurants in Chicago that do not charge a corkage fee for the wine or beer you choose to bring along. They also have great options for lunch.
They have limited seating and it is highly recommended to reserve a table by giving them a call, especially on Fridays and Saturdays when they have a time limit of 90 minutes for each table.
