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.
Restaurateurs Nick and Giovanna Kustala split the duties of designing the menu at Vault Steak House, with Nick crafting the cuisine and Giovanna cultivating a list of wines to pair with the food. The main attraction is the 28-day dry-aged steaks, ranging from cuts of chateaubriand to 28-ounce delmonico steaks and 24-ounce porterhouses. Diners can add sauces and toppings to steaks as well, including blue cheese, béarnaise, and gorgonzola fondue. Elsewhere on the menu, the eatery's versatility is reflected in dishes such as white truffle and portobello ravioli and farm-raised, crab-crusted snapper with spicy mayo.
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.
Homemade, cooked-to-order meals pair with a roster of 14 on-tap beers to bring a taste of the Emerald Isle to the East Coast. This cozy eatery is designed to replicate an authentic Irish pub, down to the front doors that creak in a thick brogue. Locals may relax with a pint at tables near the front of the pub, or move through dark French doors to sit in the dining room. Between bites and laughs, patrons shift their attention to six flat-screen TVs or the tunes scrolling across an Internet jukebox. Upstairs, a spacious banquet room plays host to parties, and outside, a covered patio accents summertime meals with warm breezes and the rustling of trees wrestling to get a better view of the pub's signature potato leek soup.
Beneath the white siding, curved gables, and elegant green trim of an historic western New York home lies The Dove Restaurant, previously known as The Old Pony Post. Though owners Dina Mattiello and Sherry Davies come from different backgrounds, both were drawn to the idea of running a Italian Continental eatery. Their passion shows in the way they breathe new life into the same, signature family recipes. Signature dishes range from steaks?such as the chateaubriand for two, a pair of 10-ounce center-cut filets with vegetables and a duet of sauces?to pasta fagoli and shrimp scampi. Gluten-free dishes are also featured along side warm homemade breads and indulgent desserts.
