Hibachi-style dining makes food preparation transparent and fun, unlike traditional kitchens run by Illuminati-appointed freemasons and CIA-created super chefs made out of iron. Get the outside scoop with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Japanese cuisine and drinks during dinner at Mikato Steak and Sushi.
Mikato Steak and Sushi, winner of the 2010 Family Scholar People's Choice award, engages and entertains eaters with hibachi-style dining, an extensive dinner menu, and a creative array of fresh sushi. Send palates on pan-Asian journeys with pork and vegetable pot stickers ($4.95), or perfect chopstickery with pieces of sushi and sashimi ($1.50+). Diners perched around one of 10 hibachi tables gaze in amazement as deft chefs expertly slice, sear, and sing to entrees, including filet mignon ($19.95) or chicken teriyaki ($13.50), each served with soup, salad, fried rice, a shrimp appetizer, and freshly sautéed vegetables. Cool cylindrical selections include the Sunset roll ($8.50), a california roll topped with fresh salmon and lemon, or the spicy tuna and cucumber Dynamite roll ($5.50), invented and later regretted by Alfred Nobel for its use in destroying hunger. Complement meals with a mélange of quaffables, from traditional sake to wine and cocktails.
With its recent new management Mikato Steak and Sushi boasts a rich interior, low-lit ambiance, and bamboo accents, making it an ideal destination for first dates, birthday celebrations, or business meetings between panda bears.
Mikato Steak and Sushi
Chefs in tall blue toques command Mikato Steak and Sushi's ten tabletop grills, where they combine culinary derring-do with entertaining showmanship while frying rice with steak, seafood, and vegetables. The main kitchen bustles with activity, as well; chicken katsu joins other Japanese cuisine such as broiled eel and shrimp teriyaki, and sushi chefs slice sashimi and coil specialty rolls. In addition to sating hunger of all stripes, Mikato Steak and Sushi welcomes families with a children's menu and kids' birthday special, which includes ice cream, a Japanese rendition of happy birthday, and a senryu about the transitory nature of life.
