Benihana Announces "Be The Chef" Culinary Experience Now Available Year-Round

MIAMI, June 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Benihana Inc. (NASDAQ:  BNHNA; BNHN), the nation's leading operator of Japanese theme and sushi restaurants, today announced that it has made its popular "Be the Chef" experiential cooking package available to consumers year round.  Perfect for Father's Day or a graduation gift, the Benihana "Be the Chef" program provides consumers with the opportunity to train alongside a Benihana chef and then prepare an authentic Japanese teppanyaki meal for their guests.

The "Be the Chef" package begins with a private, one-on-one training session with a Benihana chef to learn the essential skills needed to cook behind a teppan grill.  On a separate weekday after training, the gift recipient prepares a full Benihana meal for their friends and family.  In addition to the private training lesson and cooking performance, the package also includes a Benihana hat, Benihana apron, complimentary souvenir photo of the performance and a Master Chef Diploma from Benihana.

"Benihana is renowned not only for its delicious food, but for the entertaining dining experience.  We are delighted to provide our guests with the unique opportunity to actually cook behind the teppan grill, and learn directly from our talented chefs," said Richard C. Stockinger, president and chief executive officer of Benihana.

Included in the package is the Benihana Splash 'n Meadow dinner, which features hibachi steak and shrimp, vegetable fried rice, Benihana onion soup, Benihana salad, hibachi vegetables, homemade dipping sauces, Haagen-Dazs ice cream and Japanese hot green tea.  Now available year round, the basic "Be the Chef" package costs $140* for four people.  Additional guests can be added for only $35 per person, and Benihana is offering a special price of $250 for eight guests.
