Kitchen magicians spin knives like batons and conjure up sizzling meals tableside, bringing to life a classic Japanese menu. In dramatic bursts of flame, the teppanyaki griddle covers cuts of sirloin, bite-size scallops, and fresh vegetables with fiery kisses that seal in juices and burn away the painful memories from surf 'n' turf breakups. For sushi fanatics, the sushi bar offers more than 20 elegant rolls.
Geometric paneling and wood inlay over shining fabric invoke a traditional Japanese atmosphere for diners, who gather around broad tables where griddles create a shining, interactive centerpiece for cooking and scallop shuffleboard.
Taisho is so serious about hibachi and teppanyaki that they have an entire room devoted to it: in the Hibachi Room, chefs sear meats and veggies on specialized tabletop grills, flipping them theatrically onto a cushion of rice, in turn located on guests' plates. Their performances are not limited to the Hibachi Room though, as they can also pull tableside grills up to the main dining room's semi-private circular booths. In either space, they let guests choose to have their teppanyaki plates bulked up with a diverse selection of meats and seafood, including teriyaki chicken, sirloin, gulf shrimp, or scallops.
The chef's specialty entrees include sashimi-grade tuna steak with an apple-olive sauce and macadamia chicken sweetened with pineapple, combining more flavors than Manhattan combines people of different walks of life who all hate hailing cabs. Beyond the flames shooting up from the grills, the ambience on Friday and Saturday evenings is set by a rotating lineup of musicians that create soothing background sounds.

The specialty sushi here includes some unexpected ingredients: there’s a plum-paste maki roll, and a crispy veggie roll with ginger, pickled radish, and sweet gourd. If the cheeky entree names (Spicy Old Lady, Udon It This Time) don’t bring on a smile, a glass of sake infused with peach, apple, or lychee will probably do the trick.
It’s an unlikely pairing of culinary styles—Japanese and South American—but somehow it works at Japaneiro’s. There’s sashimi and pepito sandwiches, dumplings and ceviche, sake and caipirinhas. The cuisines directly integrate at times; take, for example, the Wildflower roll with spicy tuna, avocado, cilantro, and jalapeño.
