Japan's New Hibachi Dining
Ok, I can't remember what the new name of this is, but it is the Hibachi style dinner where they cook it right in front of you. I have been going to this place since it opened. I LOVED it. I will say that the place is now very beautiful inside. It definitely needed the rehab in the decorating sense. As far as the meal was concerned though, I was a bit disappointed.
You used to get a small salad with a wonderful Ginger dressing and a soup that was always good. These are no longer included. If you want either of them you have to order it separately. The salad was split between my mom and I and the dressing is definitely not the same. It is much more bitter and bland than I can ever remember. They are offering sushi that you can have "cooked" on the grill in front of you which is a nice touch, I didn't get this. The meal itself was just ok. I have had better Japanese Steak House meals at places in NJ and Washington DC then I did here. I can't say what the differences are but the food was not near as good as it used to be.
Unfortunately, I do not know if I am going to go back there anytime soon. This is troubling as it was always a staple for us to go there.
