Yoshi’s Cafe has been in Lakeview for almost 40 years, and on any given night this Japanese/French restaurant is filled with regulars sitting at the bar, on the patio, or having a quiet date night in the dining room. The menu has dishes like duck liver mousse, tonkatsu with brussels sprouts and polenta, and an incredible wagyu smashburger made with caramelized onions, garlic pickles, and your choice of American or wasabi blue cheese. The food is consistently good, and it’s the kind of place where the host will remember you from your last visit.
