Not Benihana... but similar in certain key ways...

Moomin | Jul 2, 2012 07:35 AM

My four year old daughter received a free meal at Benihana as a reward for completing the local library's reading program. Fine. Great. She asked to eat lunch there yesterday. Fine.

She loved it. LOVED it. LOVED IT!

I did not. Lunch took well over two hours, the menu was very short, and the food was dull.

Is there a comparable dining experience (with a certain amount of pagentry) available, that provides better selection and tastier food? What my daughter wants is a chef to prepare a meal right in front of her... what I want is a meal that we can really enjoy...

Any thoughts?
