Save me from the horror that is Benihana. I need a PLAN B fellow hounds....stat.

Dear Chowhounders:

bessech you fellow hounds to aid me in my time of need. My cousin is visiting from Australia and has requested one of our family dinners to be at Benihana!! The last time I went to Benihana was because of a girl, she also really liked white zinfandel and Medieval Times. Hey, lust is blind.

This is a tradition I started with my sister and LA cousins years ago. One cousin and I used to do these extravagant Mexican meals, but soon others took turns and.......wel, it was about the family time, not necessarily the food. We then tried restaurants for a while, great, but, one cousin is a vegetarian, another never dines better than Hungry Man and Jackin the Box, another has a million sensorial issues, which just left the other cooking cousin and I.

So, my fast food eating, Hamburger Helper slingin', Boone's Farm drankin' cousin wants to go to Benihana.

Do you have a teppan grill rec for me that can sate his need for flash and frivolity, and let me also dine with dignity? Hey, I'll go to Benihana with a smile for my cousin, but.....hey, can't knock me for tryin.
