Once mastered, chopsticks are the most manageable eating utensils, unlike forks, which get mangled in the dishwasher, or fingers, which get lost in the mouths of teething sock puppets. Eat easily with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of sushi and hibachi cuisine at Ginza Japanese Steak House & Sushi Bar in Cary.
The hibachi chefs at Ginza Japanese Steak House & Sushi Bar entertain patrons with tableside grilling showmanship and an extensive menu of hibachi and sushi rolls. Diners revel in the chefs’ dexterity as chicken and mushrooms ($15.95) arc through the air between searing kisses from the flat-top grill and cavemen marvel at the complete control of fire required to fry the shrimp-, chicken-, and filet-mignon-laden Emperor’s Delight ($23.95). Chopsticks clamp around two pieces of crab sushi ($3.25) and back flip in anticipation of the reverse-rolled volcano roll packed with crab, avocado, and spicy scallops ($9.80). Guests who prefer to preserve the illusion of cooking can call on the kitchen for an order of steak teriyaki served with steamed vegetables ($17) or a lightly battered platter of tempura vegetables ($15.95).
Chairs wrap around hibachi grills in a U shape beneath polished silver vents in Ginza's sleek dining room and flames gleam off of smooth black tabletops. Easily distracted eaters find solace in tall, green-cushioned chairs along the sushi or beverage bars, where they can watch bartenders shake up cocktails and sushi chefs shake salmon filets until Alaska rolls fall out.
Ginza Japanese Steak House & Sushi Bar
With consummate showmanship, hibachi chefs grill lobster tails and shrimp in front of guests in Ginza Japanese Steak House & Sushi Bar’s modern dining room. Flames from the hibachi grill gleam off black tabletops surrounded by chairs arranged in a U-shape. Behind the sushi bar, chefs prepare california rolls alongside specialties such as the Mayflower, whose spicy tuna and fish eggs evoke the sea life that pilgrims used to catch by hand and throw at trees they suspected of practicing witchcraft. In the kitchen, cooks craft more traditional dishes such as chicken and salmon glazed in teriyaki sauce or veggies and shrimp fried tempura-style.
