Domo 77's chefs whirl fresh ingredients into artful sushi and perform feats of gustatory swashbuckling on the hibachi grill. Fresh nigiri sushi stacks supple eel ($6) or smelt roe ($4), and the tempura roll presents a sultry quartet of crab, avocado, eel, and cream cheese, with guest sousaphone solos from sushi rice ($8).
Spatula slingers turn their hands to acrobats, soaring and searing hibachi entrees such as chicken with teriyaki sauce ($15) or an intertwining of salmon and chicken ($22.50). Hibachi entrees come with a choice of sauces, such as french garlic and teriyaki, and are preceded by a bugle ditty followed by an appetizer of shrimp, soup, salad, vegetables, and fried rice.
Domo 77 and Japan 77
In 1977, Eddy Ho came to America with the dream of opening his own restaurant. In the 35 years since, he has lived that dream three times over, founding a trio of establishments that spotlight the showiest styles of Japanese cooking while commemorating the year of his transpacific crossing. Whether it's filet mignon, chicken, and seafood chopped by a flurry of clicking blades on hibachi grills or a sleek roll of sushi assembled by deft hands, each entrée arrives in a dining room decked with hints of traditional Japanese architecture, including subtle geometric patterns, crimson accents, and painstakingly manicured flora. Glasses of imported Japanese beer and sake stand ready to accompany each meal, helping diners toast to good fortune or play a glass harp rendition of their college fight song.
