  • Samurai Chef Steak and Sushi
    Samurai Chef's chefs slice and dice a diverse menu of food right at the restaurant's smokeless hibachi tables. Customers seeking a detour from the hibachi highway can start their feast with the beef kabob ($4.95), pork dumplings ($4.25), or the fried soft shell crab ($6.95). Carnivorous meat lovers can explore the hibachi options including New York steak ($17.95), salmon ($16.95), and teriyaki duck ($16.95), or combinations such as the samurai seafood lovers dinner, featuring lobster accompanied by sousaphone-playing shrimp and saxophone-tooting scallops from the ocean's underwater jazz band ($29.95). Although your Groupon is only valid for the teppanyaki tables, those with images of raw fish recurring in their dreams can conquer their subconscious with Samurai Chef's plethora of maki, sashimi, and sushi.

  • Sama Zama
    To the Japanese, the words “sama zama” mean “variety.” But to a food critic from the Pitch, the unfamiliar phrase has become synonymous with “serious snacks.” That’s how she described the fare at Sama Zama, an eatery run by One Bite Japanese Grill's owner, Erika Koike. Perhaps the most intriguing of Erika's family recipes and culinary experiments is the okonomi yaki, a savory pancake often dubbed Japanese-style pizza. It consists of grilled dough crowned with the meat or veggies of your choice, a fried egg, sweet sauces, and crunchy noodles. Exposed brick juts out from an orange accent wall in Sama Zama's Tokyo-inspired interior, which is splashed with circles and triangles that appear to move of their own volition under the light cast by bare bulbs and the baby suns tethered to the ceiling.

  • Kokoro Maki House
    Don't believe you can get delicious sushi in the middle of the country? Let Kokoro Maki House prove you wrong. Known for a spicy tuna roll that is, in fact, spicy, as well as fantastic ramen soup and the best shrimp tempura in the Midwest, Kokoro Maki House is full of surprises. The vibe is relaxed, the interior lacking pretense. Order at the counter and either take out or eat in. We prefer the latter option, especially for the Korean dishes. Yes, Kokoro also specializes in Korean food, and has all the typical favorites on the menu such as bibim bap. Kokoro serves both the sushi and Korean dishes with all the drama and flair they deserve. The bibim bap, for example, comes in a heated stone bowl that crisps the rice and cooks the egg to perfection, a word that can describe most of Kokori Maki House's dishes.
