Long before Iron Chef taught us just how quick-handed knife-wielding Japanese cooks can be, there were the lickety-split tableside cooking shows that are still the main draw at this teppanyaki steakhouse. Kids, of course, love it. Your chef might flip a shrimp into his hat or build a volcano from onion rings doused with water. They have an award-winning kids’ menu and pint-size chopsticks for preteen purists.


Last seating 30 minutes before closing.
