Editor’s note: The following is a seven-part series on the best new bars and restaurants in Grand Rapids, brought to us by food and beverage industry reporter Pat Evans.
For those who had a soft spot for Shanghai Ichiban, there is good news for you. In December, Nagoya Steak House & Sushi opened for business, making it downtown’s only hibachi restaurant.
The restaurant is in the space once occupied by local favorite Osteria Rossa, 16 Monroe Center, NE. With four hibachi tables, one can be sure the “dinner and a show” component will help make Nagoya’s downtown restaurant another hot spot. For those unfamiliar with the concept, a chef comes out to a flattop grill surrounded by a table full of diners and puts on a show full of interactive pieces.
Along with the hibachi tables, the restaurant offers an array of sushi dishes and hibachi meals.
