MIAMI, Oct. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Benihana Inc. (NASDAQ: BNHNA; BNHN), the nation's leading operator of Japanese theme and sushi restaurants, has announced the October Chef's Special, Hibachi Shrimp & Chicken for Two, a five-course feast for only $36 and Hibachi Tuna Steak for One, five courses for just $21.75.
October is the official start of sake brewing season, and what better way to celebrate than a dinner out at Benihana for a sampling of the traditional Japanese "rice wine." Throughout the month, two guests can enjoy this Benihana teppanyaki treat of hibachi shrimp and chicken grilled with mushrooms and sesame seeds, Benihana onion soup, Benihana salad, hibachi shrimp appetizer, mushrooms, hibachi vegetables, homemade dipping sauces, steamed rice and Japanese hot green tea, a five-course meal for just $36 (tax and gratuity excluded). For solo diners, the sesame crusted hibachi tuna steak special is paired with tomato, avocado and edamame in a white balsamic sauce, Benihana onion soup, Benihana salad, hibachi shrimp appetizer, homemade dipping sauces, steamed rice and Japanese hot green tea, a five-course meal for only $21.75 (tax and gratuity excluded).
Enjoy either of the October Chef's Specials with one of Benihana's specialty drinks such as the refreshing Classic Saketini or Strawberry Sake Caipirinha. Or, try either special with a wine pairing - the Hibachi Shrimp & Chicken for Two with a glass of La Crema Chardonnay and the Hibachi Tuna Steak for One with a more traditional sake, such as the Shimizu No Mai "Pure Dawn."
Both Chef's Specials are available throughout the entire month of October. The Hibachi Shrimp & Chicken for Two will be offered at all Benihana restaurants in the United States with the exception of New York City and Hawaii.
