Flashing knives and spurting flames dazzle diners as the chefs at Kuma Japanese Steak House & Sushi Bar theatrically sear entrees on the tabletop hibachi grills. Equally comfortable with cooking vegetables and meats, the chefs can shuffle a number of them across the grill's iron surface, including scallops, chicken, or filet mignon. Meanwhile, the sushi chefs gingerly slice pieces of fresh salmon and tuna behind their bar—unlike traditional bartenders, who rarely slice bottles into neat sections. Their work does not stop there, however, because they also carefully layer orders of salmon nigiri that can emerge alongside a familiar or inventive sushi roll, which arrives in either six or eight bite-sized pieces.
Kane Yama's cooks fire up tableside hibachi grills to create healthy, authentic Japanese dishes and serve fresh eats from a full sushi bar. The menu boasts an eclectic number of steakhouse standbys and tongue-taming sharable sushi rolls, such as the fresh tuna tekka maki ($6) or the Oh My God roll ($15)—a combination of chili sauce and three different fishes that elicits involuntary OMGs from otherwise staid diners. Hibachi meals harness the timeless power of food-preparing heat with your choice of chicken, filet mignon, seafood, or a double dose of veggies. Each lunch comes with soup, salad, vegetables, and steamed rice ($7–$14), and dinner hibachi plates ($14–$28) also throw in a shrimp appetizer.
