My niece had a birthday recently and we celebrated it in a newly opened restaurant called Koto. We ate in the Hibachi grill section.
Even though there were 17 of us, we were all able to sit together in a three-sided arrangement.
Young, experienced (I assume Japanese) chefs manned the two grills facing guests, one on either side, and put on quite a show.
The chefs cooked everything in front of us.
How they ever tossed eggs into the air and had them land on the spatulas, rolling them around right before us, I'll never know but they did it. Fascinating.
When big towers of fire on the grills lighted up the night , both the kids and the adults in our party did plenty of oooing and ahhing.
A cool ceiling light changed colors and made me think of middle school dances!
They even played birthday songs for those celebrating their special days.
It was a great experience and everyone loved it.
My hubs and I had filet mignon pieces, shrimp, fried rice and veggies.
Everything tasted great.
What a fun night!
