The Mitsukoshi Teppanyaki had good food and decor. It has since closed and been replaced with a new similar styled restaurant.
An absolute must! The food is top notch! The authentic atmosphere is brilliant! The cooking staff is very entertaining, and the service is outstanding! This is one of the best, and it is no secret. Book your reservations well in advance because this one seems to be a favorite on everyones list!
I admittedly entered this restaurant quite skeptical, as I\\\'m a regular at the Japanese restaurant in DC most-frequented by the Japanese Embassy staff. I was pleasently surprised to find the menu had something for everyone. There was the fairly standard \\\"Bennihana\\\" stuff (which you won\\\'t find in Japan) for the less experienced/adventurous, coupled with a la carte options that rounded out the experience. My friend ordered from the Teppan menu, and I ordered a la carte, and we were both very pleased.
There was also a family with 3 children seated with us. It was their first experience with Japanese food. They were very curious about the things I ordered, so together with our teppan chef they got a crash course in Japanese cuisine as we passed plates around the table. It was unexpected and very fun for all!!
I\'ve had much better at a Japanese restaurant here in my home town at lower cost. I was very disappointed with this restaurant. When I left I bought some popcorn...I was still hungry. It was not filling at all. The service, however, was great! It was fun, but not worth the money.
This location closed in 2007 and was replaced with Teppan Edo.
