A high-protein diet can help to build muscle, which comes in handy when fighting off a shark that is also on a high-protein diet. Take a bite out of the circle of life with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of sushi, hibachi fare, and drinks at Tokyo Japanese Steak House.
Tokyo Japanese Steak House's menu of traditional hibachi-style grill fare and sushi stimulates all seven senses, even the ability to smell colors, with a dining experience centered around a sizzling grill and a nimble-knifed chef who turns each dish into a dazzling culinary circus. Diners at communal hibachi tables or traditional booths can dive into a savory evening with steamed edamame ($4.95) or a deep-fried soft-shell-crab appetizer ($8.95). Whirling blades, banterly commentary, and flying shrimp take center stage during a hibachi steak dinner, wherein flashing cutlery and spitting fire dance an entertaining duet as food is cooked in front of teased diners ($17.95). An abundance of fresh sushi and sashimi inspires nostalgic visions of pre-evolution undersea living with two pieces of yellowtail ($5.25), octopus ($4.50), or surf clam ($4.50).
Grab a drink at the bar—with a piano—pre or post meal, or relax on the outdoor patio with friends and off-duty steak knives. The dark chairs and woodwork stand out warmly against the bright neutrals and minimalist décor, lending a contemporary feel to the clean, relaxing atmosphere.
Tokyo Japanese Steak House
Tokyo Japanese Steak House is a feast for the eyes, nose, and ears as well as the mouth. In addition to "laser lights in the lobby" and "sushi in martini glasses," as noted by Nashville Scene, hibachi chefs stand by your table and make theater out of food preparation, tossing around teriyaki meats and tofu dishes and making puppet shows with chopsticks.
There’s also a wide selection of sushi here. Try the signature Tennessee roll, which incorporates spicy tuna topped with fish, eel sauce, and tempura flakes. Also worth a try: the barbecue eel over sushi rice.
