The sliding shoji screens and Japanese art decorating Sapporo's dining room strongly hint at the restaurant's trans-Pacific inspiration, but the fully stocked sushi bar and dexterous hibachi chefs remove all doubt. The menu embraces the diversity of Japanese cuisine, featuring grilled and tempura-fried options alongside clean and elegant sushi. The sushi menu features more than 50 different rolls, including specialty maki with everything from mango and salmon to spicy crab and lobster salad. Bursts of flame stand out amid the restaurant's dark wooden tables as hibachi chefs entertain guests, searing entrees of filet mignon, chicken, and scallops.

Sitting in Harusame Japanese Cuisine can feel like spending an evening in a friend's living room. Plush fabric drapes from the ceiling, scrolls hang from the walls, and soft light fills the space from overhead lamps. That feeling isn't accidental—the restaurant's goal is to make customers feel like family, though its menu could feed a small army. It includes more than 35 sushi rolls and dozens of ocean-fresh, sashimi-grade cuts of fish served à la carte. To sample the full array of aquatic delights, diners can opt for the all-you-can-eat menu, digging into constantly refilled rolls and appetizers. A BYOB policy rounds out the room's hospitality, allowing patrons to tote along their favorite tipple to sip on thorough their meal.

Like any good buffet, Koki Buffet doesn't lack options. The kitchen staff serves more than 150 dishes, including an assortment of sushi rolls, a mix of Japanese, Chinese, and even Martian entrees, and a dessert section filled with fruit, ice cream, and pastries. On the weekends, the chefs make space on the dinner buffet counter for lobster in the form of lobster sushi rolls. Even better, all of the feasting takes place inside a stylish interior highlighted by neon accent lighting and pendant lamps with no need for formal attire.

Arirang Hibachi Steakhouse and Sushi Bar's hibachi chefs pull double duty, acting as entertainers in addition to grillmasters. They captivate large groups of diners with whirling knifework, dynamic spatula twirls, and the occasional spout of flame at tableside hibachi grills, flipping hot portions of lobster and chicken directly onto waiting plates. Behind the bamboo-finished bar, the sushi chefs move more slowly as they carefully seal colorful combinations of veggies, seafood, and vinegar-anointed rice within sheets of delicate seaweed. Like a poltergeist beauty pageant, not all of the talent is visible to the eye—the culinary team makes some of the restaurant's most exotic dishes, such as kobe beef sliders and wasabi-crusted filet mignon, behind the closed doors of the kitchen.

At Daimatsu Japanese Sushi Bar, head chef Masatomo "Momo" Soma puts his decade of professional experience to good use as he creates visually stunning masterpieces of Japanese cuisine. Diners savor the subtle flavors of thinly sliced sashimi and sushi, then expand their palates to prized deep-sea dishes⎯such as giant clam, skipjack, and sea urchin⎯without having to peruse early-morning fish markets or become a stowaway on an ocean trawler.

Homestyle dishes of breaded-pork katsu cutlets, savory udon noodles in miso broth, and salmon teriyaki add a hearty touch to lunches and dinners. Salads and appetizers such as tender-chicken yakitori or plump-pork gyoza complement meals with morsels of expertly prepared veggies, seafood, and meat.

With more than 50 HDTVs, surround sound, stadium seating, and a trio of 100-inch screens for major sporting events, Central Park makes a strong case against actually going to the big game. Enveloped by accommodating extras, the restaurant's guests find an equally accommodating menu that's loaded with favorites for all sorts of tastes. At the center of Central Park's spread, the Southwest onion stack buries a burger beneath a tower of onion rings. It stands at more than a half-foot tall?about the height of an adolescent bobblehead?and headlines a selection of burgers, pizzas, and other game-friendly foods. Even with all this, Central Park packs one more surprise: a sushi bar, where fans can devour traditional rolls and special creations.
