Benihana Launches Seasonal Menu Items and Cocktails
Benihana, a leading operator of Japanese theme and sushi restaurants, announced its latest limited-time menu offerings, which will be available exclusively at select Benihana restaurants from April through June.
The newest creation from the grill is the Grilled Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction. This entree features lamb chops prepared with fresh asparagus and tomato, served with a balsamic reduction.
For sushi connoisseurs, the Wow Roll is designed to impress. The roll features eight pieces with the first four filled with shrimp tempura and fresh veggies, and the other four with cream cheese and crab, and then fried.
Each piece is finished with an array of toppings including spicy tuna, crab mix, spicy shrimp, fresh avocado, and five different sauces.
Three new cocktails are also available. The Pineapple Jiu-Jitsu is a decadent concoction of pineapple rum muddled with grilled pineapple and salted caramel syrup, then shaken with lemon juice.
For a sweet, refreshing taste, the Pear Martini is a blend of pear vodka and St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur shaken with pear puree, lemon juice, and touch of simple syrup.
Guests in a group of two or more can share the Red Flower Punch Bowl. This punch bowl exudes spring with a bright blend of flavors from mango and raspberry vodka and strawberry and peach liqueurs.
