Before sushi proved how delightful rolled-up food could be, fish had been served folded over and rice woven into a basket. Collect creative sushi creations in your own food basket with today's Groupon to Robata of Tokyo, located on South 9th Street. With a name that means “fireside” in Japanese, Robata of Tokyo is aglow with hibachi flames, serving a variety of authentic Japanese dishes concocted with the freshest ingredients and prepared in Japanese tradition. Robata of Tokyo’s sushi and sashimi menu overflows with dozens of flavors to taste, while the hibachi dinners are theatrically cooked at your table with options like savory sirloin, tuna, shrimp, calamari, and more. Wash it down with a libation from Robata of Tokyo’s extensive drink menu, such as the Rising Sun, hot sake with a splash of plum wine, or a bottle of Yuengling lager—each superb drinks for partnering with poorly overdubbed conversation.

Robata of Tokyo
Traditional Japanese culture dictates that the hearth of the house is the heart of the house—a common space where family and friends broke bread together. The robata restaurant takes that concept further, typically by making a fiery grill the centerpiece of the dining room. Mr. and Mrs. Shindo, the owners of Robata of Tokyo, aim to capture a familial, welcoming atmosphere, where you can sample a wide range of Japanese cuisine spanning sushi, tempura, and hibachi grilling.
Cooking is theatre at Robata: take a seat at the sushi bar to watch the chef prepare both traditional and unique sushi rolls. The Halloween roll features salmon, avocado, and masago. You can also watch as chefs at the hibachi grill slice and dice meat and veggies and serve it directly to patrons. A full bar is on hand, too, serving sake and beer.
