Whether your go-to is shrimp and steak or chicken all day, you’ll love seeing your food pop and sizzle at these local eateries.

Love the concept of dinner and a show? It’s always a given with hibachi, the Japanese-inspired practice of preparing food at high temperatures on smooth, show-stopping grills. Add to that a high-energy chef and sizzling, sumptuous meals, and you have a seriously entertaining dinner experience that no one will forget anytime soon.

Here’s where to find the hottest hibachi from Albany to Rockland. P.S. Many restaurants offer discounted specials at lunch if you’re looking to score major flavor for fewer dollars.

Cho Cho San, Nanuet

First things first — Cho Cho San has a full bar. Grab a drink when you get in, then go straight for the flavorful hibachi menu, which includes everything from chicken and shrimp to ahi tuna. Need something sweet? A simple bowl of green tea ice cream hits the spot like nothing else.

Hana, Albany

Hana brings top quality hibachi to the Albany region, serving up both single and combo platters with an option of fried rice, white rice, or noodles on the side. Feeling fancy? Go for the seafood medley, which packs shrimp, scallops, and lobster tail onto one plate.

Hanzo, North Greenbush

In Rensselaer County, Hanzo dishes up everything a hibachi lover could crave. Place your order for vegetable, scallop, or shrimp hibachi, to name only a few options, then browse the sushi menu for kicks. With names like Chex Roll, Kill Bill Roll, and Oh My Lord Roll, the sushi specials are worth a try too, even if just as an appetizer before the big meal.

Dinner with the family!

Kodomo, Kingston

A must for special occasions in the Hudson Valley, Kodomo offers hibachi at both its live table demonstrations and as specialty orders prepared in the kitchen.

Momiji, Rhinebeck

Dine in style at Momiji, the Rhinebeck hibachi spot that heats up Dutchess County with standby hibachi dinners that pair salmon, shrimp, and filet mignon with soup, salad, and noodles. Children’s specials are available at discounted prices as well.

Needless to say, you’ll be more than a little full by the time you leave.

Okaeri, Monroe
