is there a good hibachi place in manhattan???
my bf wants to go to an hibachi place for his birthday, the kind where they make the food and a spectacle in front of you. i've been to arirang and that's great, but he wants to eat in manhattan. all i can find is benihana- is that good? never been, and i don't want to end up with some kind of TGIFridays or olive garden experience on his special day. any suggestions would be much appreciated.
I haven't been to Benihana, but it's the only Hibachi place I know of in Manhattan. Maybe you could try Gyu Kaku for something different? They don't grill for you or make a spectacle, but it's fun to grill your own food at the table. I went for my birthday and had a great time.
There are 2 locations:
34 Cooper Sq | Btwn Astor Pl & 4th St
805 3rd Ave | Btwn 49th & 50th St
That's a tough one, not much in the way of options outside ariang and benihana. if your bf wants the show, you may need to go benihana. it can be pretty touristy since it's a chain though. i couldn't find a menu or review for this place, but it came up in numerous searches via google-datong hibachi on 325 broadway. no pub to go on, so i'd be wary. i know it's not the same as hibachi, but how about korean bbq? plenty of good options albeit without the show...
