When I lived in New York, beef negimaki (beef wrapped
around scallion and grilled) was a staple at numerous
Japanese restaurants from Westchester to Manhattan to
Queens to Long Island. Since I've lived in Chicago,
I've been to a dozen Japanese restaurants and none
seem to serve it. Considering the average Chicagoan's
taste for steak, I find this confusing. Does anyone
know why beef negimaki is not on the menu, and more
importantly, someplace where it is?
