Meredith Brody’s final review for the SF Weekly ran today, a 983-word recap of a visit to the Outer Richmond’s Yu-Zen. The place sounds like a calming note on which to finish. “The atmosphere at Yu-Zen is the antithesis of a trendy rock ‘n’ roll sushi spot. There’s no greeting shouted at you from the sushi bar, which is tucked into the back of the spacious room; no noisy soundtrack; no wacky creations with wackier names on the menu.” Brody and her companions got to sample a large portion of the menu, most of which they liked, especially a sashimi combination plate. “It was a perfect plate to share and linger over, inducing that relaxed zen state that we sometimes achieve at table, but not often enough.” Here’s hoping Brody’s next gig puts her in that pleasant state more often.
