It’s a safe bet that the residents of Park Slope weren’t exactly pining for a Benihana knockoff. But now that they’ve got one, they might well wonder how they survived without it. Sure, there are plenty of sushi dens in the nabe, but there are few spots, even in Brooklyn, where you can watch a red-kerchiefed-and-toqued chef grill your favorite animal protein even as he performs complex knife tricks (“behind the back!”), sings phrases from your favorite pop tunes (“holla back!”) and jokingly implies that Japanese beef is actually, uh, feline (“meow!”). Super-fresh sushi and sashimi prevail here, along with a host of creative maki rolls. The warm interior, with flagstone floors, richly stained wood, shoji screens, and soothing slate-blue and exposed-brick walls suggest an inviting pagoda chic. But seeing your food cooked in front of you has a downside: The savory, toothsome richness comes from dollop after dollop of butter, which the chef affectionately calls “Japanese ice cream.”
