Benihana Rolls Out New Menu Items

Stocks in this article: BNHN

MIAMI, July 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Benihana Inc. (NASDAQ: BNHN), the nation's leading operator of Japanese-themed and sushi restaurants, has created a new lounge menu with nine Japanese-inspired bites, added one entree to its famous Teppanyaki menu and crafted seven new refreshing cocktails.

For those looking for a delicious way to relax after a long day's work, Benihana has created a new lounge menu featuring slightly lighter fare. The 1964 Roll offers a variation of a classic with Kani Kami crab, shrimp, cucumber and crunchy spinach tempura bits in a sweet eel sauce. For guests who prefer cuisine with a kick, the Volcano Shrimp – crispy shrimp served on a bed of mixed greens with a creamy spicy dipping sauce – will hit the spot. Or for those who enjoy a more contemporary dish, the lounge menu offers a Trio of Fish Tacos, featuring tuna, salmon and tilapia sashimi with avocado, grape tomato, shallot salsa and taco sauce.

Guests looking to enjoy Benihana's traditional Teppanyaki dining room experience have a delicious new option, too – Hibachi Mango Salmon. The dish features hibachi salmon with sweet potatoes and vegetables, served with delicious Asian-inspired mango salsa. The Hibachi Mango Salmon is the perfect meal to enjoy with family and friends in the dining room while watching Benihana's famous performing chefs.

Any of Benihana's seven new cocktails are the perfect complement to either dining experience. Start off the evening with the Yuzu Margarita – a delicious blend of Patron Silver Tequila, Patron Citronge, organic agave nectar and yuzu sour mix. Or try Tokyo Wild Tea with ABSOLUT Wild Tea Vodka, iichiko shochu, yuzu sour mix, organic black iced tea and Gosling's Ginger Beer. Top off your night with the Tokyo Manhattan – a sophisticated mix of The Yamazaki 12 Years Single Malt Whisky, Lillet Rouge, Cherry Herring and Fee Brothers Cherry Bitters.
