On The Town: Times Square Has Never Seen A Samurai Attack...

...Until recently.

Introducing Inakaya.

" Think of Inakaya as Momofuku Ko meets Medieval Times, just without any jousting—yakikata (grill chefs) serve food on wooden paddles, samurais have Japanese screaming matches involving red snapper, and you're right smack in the middle of the whole dance.

But even if you're not into Japanese meat theatrics, there's a simple, traditional, succulent meal of fresh grilled meats, fish and veggies to be had. In front of you will be your yakikata, kneeling on a platform beside a grill, separated from you by only a moat of produce, chicken thigh and fish (try the rare Kinki fish, flown in daily from Tokyo) that will soon be your freshly grilled dinner.

Screaming samurai slicing and dicing our teriyaki grilled salmon right in front of us to either sheer delight or rambunctious confusion sounds like a date to remember. Take her here, she'll love you for it.

Inakaya is located at:

NY Times building
