The second act to Berkeley’s 35-year-old original, this hotspot with a stylish Fillmore address takes dinner and a show to a whole new octave. Spanning an awesome 28,000 square feet, Yoshi’s comprises a high-design 300-plus seat dining room-with three private event spaces and two chic lounges-as well as an ample auditorium that holds 400 without a bad seat in the house. The nightclub is already booking big names-Chick Corea, the Count Basie Orchestra-and the restaurant is drawing crowds too. Live jazz and blues may seem more suited to soul food than sushi. But at Yoshi’s, Spicy Geisha maki, panko monkfish, and Berkshire pork prime rib are decidedly musical accompaniments. Lofty ceilings, massive sculptural hangings, and ambient light set a dramatic stage for a new breed of scenesters: decked-out and dressed-down jazz lovers of all ages who take their tunes with a sit-down dinner or just sake and snacks in one of two modern lounges. For a different kind of live performance, groups of up to 14 foodies should book the glass-enclosed omakase room. As a guest in these back-of-the-house private dining digs, you’ll not only be treated to a special nine to 12 course tasting menu-you’ll have a front row view of Chef Kamio in action.
