Venue Info

Sakura might seem like just another Japanese steak house with the same 8 vinyl-covered seats wrapping around a hibachi grill, but it also serves hand-rolled sushi and a surprisingly extensive Chinese menu. You are more than welcome to enjoy your heaping pile of Teppanyaki New York strip, shrimp, and/or chicken and the obligatory flaming onion choo-choo train while your mountain of fried rice cooks in front of you, but you can just as easily get General Tso’s, Kung Pao, Beef and Broccoli, or Chow Mein. The specialty maki menu featuring octopus, eel, and mackrel is particularly good and skips the gimmicky recipes that claim geographical significance (we’re looking at you Philadelphia roll). For ultra-private dining sit in the old safe in the back (no, they won’t lock you in).
