Yuba comes to us by way of 2 former Masa (the critically acclaimed Japanese resto) alums – serving modern Japanese fare. It’s a casual, chill spot glammed up with culinary delights such as wagyu skewers and caviar-topped oysters.

There was a thoughtful presentation to each course. I loved the plates and flatware.

The menu has traditional Japanese dishes along with more unique delights featuring high-end ingredients and influences from China and Italy.

I knew his faves would include an eclectic mix of restaurants that span the globe. Check out Pos’ Sip, Chat, Chow Global flow:
