Tempura dishes ($14.99–$20.99) emerge from the depths of the kitchen while hibachi-grills stationed in the dining room sizzle up a menu of chicken ($18.99), scallops ($20.99), and hand-cut filet-mignon ($26.99) entrees. Each dinner entree begins with Shoyo onion soup followed by salad with the house secret salad dressing. Alongside each dish are mushrooms, broccoli, snow peas, carrots, zucchini, onions, and the house special fried rice.

Arigato Japanese Steak House

Dale Del Bello remembers everything about his first hibachi experience. While stationed in Korea as a part of the Air Force National Guard, Dale and a group of friends visited Tokyo on leave. They followed a traditional route among his fellow service people, which took him to a hibachi restaurant. Immediately he sensed that he’d stumbled upon more than just dinner. The chefs’ showmanship fascinated him as they seared meats and vegetables on their tabletop grills, allowing guests to sample forkfuls directly off the 600-degree surface. After returning to Buffalo, New York, in 1971, Dale opened his first Arigato location, attempting to recreate what made that dining experience so remarkable. Since then, he has distilled the authentic experience into something that families can enjoy without traveling abroad, establishing Arigato restaurants throughout New York and Florida and staffing them with more than 60 chefs from Japan.

Surrounded by 8–10 diners, these chefs act not only as the restaurant’s culinary creators, but also as showmen and magicians of sorts, dexterously slicing ingredients, flipping shrimp tails into their hats, and conjuring soy sauce out of thin air. Away from the flaming tabletops, meanwhile, bartenders make use of their own skill sets as they mix specialty cocktails, which occasionally use splashes of plum wine or sake to imbue familiar-sounding drinks with new dimension.

The chef is well trained to entertain and also cook a wonderful meal, plenty of food, and they even slice meats tiny for the smaller kids
