Mori Teppan Grill

Best Children’s Menus, July 2010
Small Fry
The chefs at the hibachi house Mori Teppan Grill can make a fiery volcano out of an onion or launch a morsel into a triple back flip with a twist, then catch it on the tip of a spatula. The sizzling results—mixed vegetables, top sirloin, chicken, or shrimp—come with miso soup, salad, steamed rice, and an appetizer on the $9.25 all-inclusive Ninja Menu. Diners who draw a crayon likeness of the ever-present Mr. Mori may find their artwork accepted into the Mori-san student portrait gallery that flanks the restaurant’s entrance.
