Dineout at Benihana!

We are excited to offer an all vegan table at Benihana, a traditional Japanese hibachi restaurant. The meal meal is prepared fresh and served by a performing chef, right before your eyes. Space is limited, so sign up for this amazing dine out opportunity now!

Update - Please note that the time has been changed per Benihana's request.

We MUST have 8 people show up if we want an all vegan table. The restaurant seats "family style" up to 8 people at a table. If only 6 vegans show up to this meet-up, we will probably have to cancel this dine out.

    Unfortunately not liking ginger just means you are crazy.

    Oh boy! I better check that out. By the way, is there any scientific evidence about ginger too? Here is a photo of Speckles and Morey that I like to call "My Punk Rock Dogs". :)

    Great list, Melissa! Let's remember Midori's for amazing Japanese too with vegan tempura vegies. The soy peanut butter ice cream from Izzy's melts in your mouth. :)

    Here are a few of the vegan options or resources we were talking about: Ecopolitan (only vegan but raw restaurant in MN), Sen Yai Sen Lek (Thai), Vegguide (website), and Minnesotans Exposing Petland. Also, don't forget Ethique Nouveau is having a vegan cupcake sale and massage fundraiser on March 9. The vegan cupcakes are always amazing, and they raise money for the Animal Rights Coalition. If others could post their suggestions that I don't remember, that would be great. Thanks! :)

    I tried rating it, but for some reason, the site won't accept it. It was great meeting all of you and sharing our passion for our furry family members too. My only suggestion for next time when we bring 16 people is to ask the manager to create a mini-menu for us. That's what the Dakota did. Not only was it helpful so that we knew what we could eat, but it made us feel like we were special and they had put some thought into welcoming us there.

    Friday at 6 might be a stretch for me too. It's ok, I went to the Dakota so I'll also relinquish my spot to the waiting list. Enjoy!! :)

      I'm sorry you can't make it Jeff, but I'm grateful that you were kind enough to relinquish your spot! :) I'm excited!
