Yellowtail Japanese Bistro is a new restaurant in the former Shogun location in downtown Salt Lake City. A long sushi bar now occupies the entire length of the restaurant on the right side, with a few tables in front and a bar in back. Gone are the tatami rooms, and you'll wonder how they ever fit into the narrow space to begin with. New contemporary lighting and furnishings are inviting, as well as the totally new menu which includes sushi and sashimi, and an extensive menu of cooked items ranging from grilled yellowtail cheek and tempura squid to deep-fried chicken karaage, tuna with kimchee, tonkatsu, donburi, shioyaki, soba, udon and more. There's also a small but surprisingly appealing wine list, plus beer, sake, cocktails and such.
