Fuji Japanese Steakhouse
Knife tricks and bursts of flame enliven hibachi meals at Fuji Japanese Steakhouse, where chefs clad in bright red hats juggle steak and seafood over tableside grills. A sushi bar supplies an extensive list of flameless fare, and tempura and teriyaki dishes arrive at tables awash in their signature sauces. Groups of up to eight can withdraw to private dining chambers to practice human pyramids atop soft tatami mats.
