A pot boils at the center of each table at Ten Shabu, where customers can consume traditional shabu-shabu, or hot-pot, meals. Thin slices of dry-aged rib eye, lamb, and pork disappear into a steaming vat of Japanese fish broth, tom yum, or one of nine other broth choices. Pescetarians can dig into a seafood combo of shrimp, mussels, and sea scallops, whereas vegetarians can order a tofu spread with shiitake mushrooms, spinach, and napa cabbage. The heat spectrum ranges from zero to extra-spicy, and all meals include white or brown rice, fresh vegetables, and udon noodles that eliminate hunger and replace broken shoestrings.

From the bustling streets of Times Square to the equally vivacious streets of Hong Kong, people walk around with smiles after enjoying the japanese barbecue cuisine at Gyu-Kaku. The restaurant has more than 700 locations worldwide, each rooted in the belief that some of the strongest bonds between friends are forged at the dinner table. Groups dine on a huge variety of Japanese dishes, from popular meat and veggie dishes such as Harami Skirt Steak, Kalbi Short Rib, and Bacon-wrapped Asparagus - to unique Japanese-American appetizers such as the Spicy Tuna Volcano, Wasabi Crunchy Shrimp, and Ahi Tuna Poke. The real excitement takes place around individual grills, however, where diners can barbecue their own slabs of filet mignon, ahi tuna, or chicken with chili mayo until they are ideally tender or encircled by on-duty firemen.

Culture 22 stocks its carnivore-pleasing menu with porterhouses, bacon-topped burgers, and seafood. Peppercorn-crusted 12-ounce new york steak au poivre bathes in a cognac sauce, and a dozen oysters paired with inventive dipping sauces from the raw bar set taste buds out to sea. The signature New Mexican–style green-chile burger imbues a half-pound of beef with piquant Southwestern flavors, accompanied by french fries that, like wooden boards in a martial-arts studio, are hand-cut. As diners divvy up jumbo cocktail shrimp, servers ferry cocktails and beer to ebony four-top tables set aglow by chandelier and candle lighting.
