The skilled chefs at Hibachi Teppanyaki & Sushi Bar demonstrate the art of preparing Japanese cuisine as they roll sushi at an open counter and sear savory meats on tableside grills. The wide-ranging menu's sushi offerings include signature rolls such as the Caterpillar ($13), a cocoon of freshwater eel, shrimp, octopus, and avocado that later transforms into a graceful butterfly. Meanwhile, the Sky Diver roll ($13)—made of fried soft-shell crab, eel, and spicy mayo—takes a tasty freefall into waiting mouths. Hibachi entrees, prepared tableside, create savory aromas wafting from chicken ($13.99) and mahi mahi ($17.59) or combos such as shrimp and scallops ($21.99) and filet mignon and lobster ($32.99). Don options ($7.99–$14.99) include grilled eel, pork katsu, and a screening of comedian Don Knotts's most hilarious moments.
The chefs at Blue Mint Thai & Asian Cuisine take omnivores', vegetarians', and vegans' taste buds on a tour of the Far East with their menu of rice and noodle dishes. Appetizers such as fried or fresh spring rolls strike the dinner gong before servers present soups infused with lemongrass and coconut milk or salads crowned in peanut dressing. Stir-fried starches support a choice of meats or veggies, and curries bring their colorful flavor to sides of jasmine rice. Open since 2008, this casual pan-Asian BYOB eatery boasts vibrant red booths and low-top tables, as well as free WiFi.
