Ever tried Shabu Shabu? If not, the Japanese hotpot dining experience may be a fun thing to bond over. The Tatsu-Ya crew has put a new spin on the traditional shared style by giving each guest a personal cast iron pot (how fitting for the COVID-era) on a cooker. Choose a broth, get your sauces and rice, and then get lost in a meat, seafood, or vegetable dipping adventure. There’s an omakase option, too, if you need help with combinations and a wide selection of alcoholic beverages available to experiment with. Don’t forget to check out its pretty ice cream stand out front.
