September 26, 2018. Friends came together on a beautiful fall evening in memory of the late, great chef, Yoshi Katsumura for the unveiling of a Japanese lilac tree planted in his honor and dedication plaque donated by Northalsted Business Alliance located on Yoshi Katsumura Way, near the corner of North Halsted Street and Aldine Avenue.
The tree symbolizes Yoshi’s lasting legacy through inspirational service to the community from the kitchen of Yoshi’s Cafe Chicago celebrating its 36th anniversary in November. Chef Miguel Carchi will offer a grand anniversary dinner on Nov. 11. Special menus will also be offered Nov. 14-18.
