Yoshie Akiba, orphaned during World War II, came to the U.S. and opened Yoshi's Japanese Restaurant in 1972. Over the next 20 years, Yoshi's built itself into one of the world's most respected jazz venues. In 2006, Executive Chef Shotaro Kamio brought a whole new generation of modern Japanese cuisine to Yoshi's, which instantly put it on the map as a destination to dine in addition to the best place to hear great live music.
