What You'll Get
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 $25, you get $50 worth of Japanese cuisine, sushi, and drinks at Shinto Japanese Steak House & Sushi Bar in Naperville.
Amid Las Vegas–inspired architecture, eyes feast on chefs rolling sushi, firing hibachi grills, and hand cutting USDA Choice steaks for Shinto’s Japanese dishes. Diners can sidle up to the 360-degree quartz-topped bar and order sake ($6–$12/glass) or seasonal cocktails to pave mouth tarmac for landings of the spicy crab-salad roll ($7) or soy-paper-wrapped lobster roll ($18). Chefs flip 12-ounce new york strip steaks ($27) and flambé 12 pieces of wild shrimp ($22) at tableside hibachi grills, which use smokeless technology to keep patrons free of smoky odors and discourage magicians from dining and dashing. During lunch, chefs stuff bento boxes with heaping piles of beef mamanaki ($14) and salmon teriyaki ($14), steamed rice, shumai, a california roll, and your choice of onion soup, miso soup, or ginger salad.

About Shinto Naperville
Traditional Japanese recipes and cooking styles continue to inspire the chefs at Shinto Naperville. Mushrooming bursts of flame erupt from stainless-steel hibachis as they sear diners' orders tableside. In between shuffling platefuls of scallops or 28-day-aged filet mignon across the steaming surface, the chefs entertain their hungry audience by juggling utensils, tossing small pieces of food into guests' waiting mouths, and correctly guessing everyone's least favorite astrological sign. Measured doses of house-made teriyaki sauce or herb-infused butter lend even more flavor to the carefully caramelized entrees. Meanwhile, the chefs behind the sushi bar avoid grills entirely as they roll specialty maki with premium ingredients, including tempura lobster and jalapeño.
