If you’re anything like us, there’s no convincing required when it comes to trying new restaurants in the city, especially when it combines two of the best things ever: Japanese food and cocktails.

Touted as having one of the best new Japanese fusion menus in the city, Yutaka Japanese Bistro & Bar is making a serious name for itself with its tasty lineup of home-made ramen, Yakitori, crispy nori tacos and mochi waffles (just to name a few).

And while the food menu is enough to make any person melt into a complete puddle of happiness, the cocktail menu will help get you there faster with libations like the Yuzu G&T, K-Pop Candy Yutaka cocktail and fruit-infused sake.

Now, like anywhere, the atmosphere has to live up to the food, and this spot doesn’t disappoint. Practically woven into the furniture itself is the cozy and relaxed environment where everyone is made to feel right at home.

Better yet, you can enjoy this comfy, cozy vibe while kicking back to watch the Oilers on their giant screen all while noshing on your fave menu items. Now that’s leveling up your game in every way.

So, what are you waiting for, head on down to Yutaka to taste the hype for yourself!
