The menu at Kalbi House is a celebration of popular Korean dishes. Small grills built into the tables allow diners to sear up marinated pork ribs and scallops to their liking. Alternatively, the chefs can prepare the entire meal for you, including hot pots filled with noodles and beef tripe or traditional casseroles studded with monkfish and bean curds. But they don't stop there, branching out beyond these Korean specialties to craft a handful of Japanese favorites such as sushi rolls and teriyaki entrees.
Lauded by the New York Times for a "vision [that] stretches far beyond Asia," Neo World Bistro and Sushi Bar forges new cuisine out of Eastern and Western influences. Indonesian-born head chef Sianto Njotoatmodjo borrows liberally from Italian, French, and Indian culinary traditions, turning out new takes on classics including seafood risotto, chicken in teriyaki beurre blanc, and spicy tuna with avocado and mango in paratha-style bread. Decked out in shades of light green and chocolate brown, the sleek dining room lies adjacent to the sushi bar where specialty rolls are named for positive and inspiring feelings such as "hope," "humble," and "hey, this is tasty sushi."
Long Island's Hana Japanese Restaurant dishes out sushi, teriyaki, and other Asian cuisine beneath the glow of lantern-like hanging lamps. Within the moss-green walls of the dining room, diners feast on maki rolls and sashimi feasts; exposed wooden rafters recall the restrained aesthetics of traditional Japanese architecture. Korean dishes such as bulgogi and bibimbap round out the dinner menu, and diners can cap off meals with fried or regular ice cream in flavors such as green tea or ginger.
Japanese and Thai cuisines share table space within the romantically-lit dining room of Aozora Restaurant. Plates of fresh sushi sporting bites of white tuna or giant clam sit next to steaming plates of pad thai or thai red curry. At one of the restaurant's hibachi tables, a large hibachi grill sizzles hunks of Angus steak or lobster tail. The space includes a large dining room and sushi bar, a separate hibachi room, and a separate private party room.
