Great food and service from a top tier chef. They will be closing the end of this year so best hurry. His Slurping Turtle restaurant will remain open.

Make sure to go there on an empty stomach. Food tasting line up portions are bigger than Next or Alinea. We were stuffed. Not all servers are friendly. They look rushed eventhough the place was not packed. Or maybe it was just one of our servers.

From Our Editors

With a star-studded résumé that includes stints in such media-acclaimed restaurants as Yoshi's, Ambria, and Tribute—a Detroit-based eatery of his own that earned him a James Beard Award—it shouldn't be surprising that Takashi Yagihashi's latest culinary venture was a success. At his eponymous establishment, the chef crafts gourmet dishes inspired by his French culinary training and accented with the traditional flavors of his native Japan, creating a menu that has earned the restaurant a Michelin star and that Chicago magazine called "the finest Asian fusion cuisine in the city." Beyond acclaimed culinary skills, Yagihashi's vivacious personality earned him the title of Top Chef Masters Fan Favorite.

In a spartan dining room adorned with subtle art and slate-colored brick, diners savor entrees such as chicken in a clay pot simmering with shimeji mushrooms, eggplant, and yuzu juice, or soy-ginger caramel pork belly served with steamed buns. Yagihashi also highlights his versatility in a number of prix-fixe menus, such as the weekly 7- or 11-course Kaiseki dinner and a tasting menu that pairs each morsel with a complementary wine. While mulling over the menu, savvy wait staff offer their recommendations for the best wine, beer, or sake from the restaurant's lengthy drink lists, along with sweet post-meal choices such as Yagihashi's signature brown-egg dessert, which Chicago magazine says "elevates crème brûlée to Zen-like perfection."
