The scrape of knives being sharpened, flames shooting from the teppanyaki grill?these are but two signs that another meal has begun at Hibachi Japanese Steakhouse. Here, chefs toss teriyaki salmon filets and 22-ounce rib eye steaks with housemade sauces and seasonings, all before diners' eyes. The feasts come complete with Japanese onion soup, salad, shrimp, and grilled veggies. While hibachi chefs man their grills, sushi chefs artfully assemble 20 specialty and deep-fried rolls. The latter category features a roll named for the restaurant itself?the Hibachi?jam-packed with filet mignon and cream cheese. Raw specialties, meanwhile, include the Halloween roll, a mixture of spicy and white tuna topped with black tobiko, a tastier alternative to melted-down candy corn. Complemented by more than 10 cocktails, feasts unfold inside Hibachi's five eateries in Independence, Fairview Park, Mentor, Highland Heights, and Erie.

The decades-long legacy of Hibachi Japanese Steakhouse was built on a foundation of fresh food and entertainment. In fact, the two are intertwined: each table here houses a hibachi grill, manned by a skilled chef who brings an animated personality to the group-dining atmosphere. Using precise knife work, good hand-eye coordination, and more than a little fire, the culinary expert cooks up an array of grilled vegetables and meats right in front of guests' eyes. Should diners prefer their cuisine non-flamed, they can peruse a sushi menu that ranges from simple sashimi to inventive specialty rolls. The Boston roll, for instance, combines eel, smoked salmon, and shrimp with cool cream cheese, while the hibachi roll nods to the restaurant's namesake grill by wrapping filet mignon, scallion, and cucumber into one deep-fried package.

An expertly rolled cylinder of fish roe and avocado. A neatly organized bento box. The tang of just enough teriyaki sauce on a jumbo scallop. These are the pleasures that the chefs at Hamachi Sushi focus on perfecting each day. Diners perch at a bar or lounge at tables while enjoying the fruit of the chefs’ work, wielding chopsticks to pluck sushi and sashimi from their plates or scallions from their teeth. In addition to the wide array of rolls ensconcing salmon and barbecued eel, the menu includes traditional Japanese meals such as teriyaki meats and noodle soups. Cubic lanterns made of white paper light the dining room, whose walls are painted the bright pink of a pig that’s blushing because it forgot to curl its tail.
