I have been a loyal customer at Benihana Japanese Steak House for over 14 years (Georgetown, Bethesda, Atlanta) and have NEVER been disappointed. It’s such a cool spot to eat delicious hibachi style food while also being entertained.
The chef’s tricks are always amusing to kids and adults alike. Ranging from making a mound of buttery fried rice into a heart shape then sliding the spatula underneath raising it like a heartbeat pulsing to the cook scooting a stack of raw onions across the grill like a chochoo train with smoke coming from the top like a chimney….genius! I’m so goofy because I’ve seen them do that trick hundreds of times but will still crack up laughing as if it’s my first.
Great job Benihana, I must admit y’all have one hell of a franchise, just wish Baltimore had one so I wouldn’t have to drive 40 minutes to Bethesda.
What a perfect fit for The Inner Harbor….hint hint.
