Unlike using a hairdryer to reheat chicken noodle soup in your first apartment back in the day, the hibachi is a traditional Japanese heating device that produces incredibly palatable fare that won’t implode your electric bill. Embrace the flame, find fresh sushi and more with this offer at Koto Japanese Steak House, good for $30 worth of Japanese fare for $15.
Koto was voted Best of Connecticut by the readers of Connecticut Magazine for multiple years running, and a cursory glance at the menu easily reveals why. From delicately fried Shrimp Tempura small plates to the ocean-fresh sushi and sashimi available at the house sushi bar, savory doesn’t begin to describe. Family and friends love the showmanship of Koto’s master chefs at work on tableside hibachis, making magic with lobster, steak, chicken and more, plus tempura, teriyaki, don, noodle and rice dishes that continuously glide from the kitchen. A variety of rolls and sinfully addictive desserts round out the offerings here, making a mound of reasons you should skip the tired dinner routine and get to Groton on the double.
