About this Business
From Our Editors
A set of crimson, torii-style gates welcomes visitors to Kitaro Bistro of Japan, where tropical cocktails, inventive maki, and sizzling steak and seafood plates burst at the seams with umami flavor. Kitaro is a mix of traditional and modern influences, eschewing the de facto hibachi-steakhouse aesthetic while keeping many of its famed dishes. Industrial floor-to-ceiling windows and sleek, black leather booths share space with flat grill tops, which heat up filet mignon and mahi mahi at lunch and dinner. Chefs also prepare innovative fusion dishes such as bourbon shrimp and blackened-tuna sandwiches alongside familiar Japanese seafood, from hand-rolled maki to delicate nigiri.
