Long Island's Hana Japanese Restaurant dishes out sushi, teriyaki, and other Asian cuisine beneath the glow of lantern-like hanging lamps.

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.

Wild Ginger’s crew draws upon culinary traditions from Japan, Thailand, and China as the chefs slice burdock root, shiitake mushrooms, and lemongrass. In the bustling kitchen, they decorate colorful eats with tobiko and curlicues of honey-infused wasabi. Steam trickles from bowls of noodles and tempura-battered lobster. Servers whisk the newly minted dishes out to the yellow, orange, and green dining room, delivering them to tables of guests and cartoon silverware seeking a night away from the demands of constant singing.

Traditional Japanese sliding doors sit next to recessed lighting that glows with the neon hue of a thumping nightclub. This juxtaposition of ancient heritage and fresh innovation extends to the steak house's menu, which features surprising takes on the maki sushi roll staple. The Passion roll, for instance, kisses its white tuna with a searing flame before pairing it with juicy mango for a sweet and savory juxtaposition. The evocatively named Hot Girl Roll, on the other hand, bundles together different types of seafood, with crab and salmon complementing each other's marine flavors. Those sitting at the hibachi grill can enjoy the traditional acrobatic show, with dextrous chefs cooking up steak, chicken, and shrimp, then flipping finished morsels through the air and into diners' mouths and the air ducts as special treats for the AC repairman.
