Hana Saki Steak House
Inside a warmly lit dining room marked on one side by a sprawling and sleek sushi bar, waiters float from table to table carrying colorful and artful platters from a menu of Japanese eats. Special rolls—including the lobster -and crab-stuffed Godzilla roll and the cream-cheese- and avocado-layered Dancing Eel roll—arrive from the sushi bar enrobed in a black-seaweed dress. Next door, hibachi chefs skillfully fry rice and noodles alongside lobster, steak, and salmon on horseshoe-shaped teppanyaki griddle tables, which can seat up to 20 guests. Meanwhile, Hana Saki's barkeeps pour a selection of imported and domestic libations, including white wine, sake, and a variety of beers.
