You could go to Yuzu and order simple, traditional sushi, but that’s not the best way to enjoy this restaurant. Instead, come for the massive, crazily artistic rolls. A giant Dragon Roll with shrimp tempura, avocado, and unagi sounds basic - until it shows up with a preposterous dragon drawn out of food-colored spicy mayo. It’s a little ridiculous, but it looks cool, and tastes good. That’s pretty much Yuzu - not sushi worth driving across town for, but a great spot for a group hang in the neighborhood.

The patio and BYOB policy alone are worth repeat trips, but the simple Italian food isn't a guarantee hit.

The Izakaya is the bar in the basement of Momotaro in the West Loop, and it has great drinks and Japanese small plates.
Yusho likes to get weird and interesting with Japanese inspired food and cooking styles. It's a unique and enjoyable Avondale spot.
