DETAILS

Nakato glows with a warmth that extends beyond the fire from the grills. Family-owned and -operated since 1976, this local favorite was the first in the area to offer traditional Japanese cuisine prepared in the teppanyaki style (grilled in an iron pan). Combine the excitement of hibachi grills - on which trained chefs prepare your meal before your eyes - with the addition of a floating sushi bar in the early 1990s, and you have yourself a hit with the entire family. With metallic utensils flying everywhere, bursts of flames popping up sporadically, and a sensory overload of different sights, smells and sounds, how could it not be? The friendly hibachi masters always seem to have a new trick up their sleeves . or an extra shrimp tail to toss your way. The extensive sushi list and straightforward grill menu (including various combinations of seafood, chicken and beef) are composed of fresh ingredients flown in daily.

Beer, wine and sake available. Serving lunch Sun-Fri, dinner nightly.
