If you’re starting to feel self-conscious about your age, the flames and tricks of a hibachi dinner are a good way to distract from the quantity of candles on your birthday cake. Nakato is a Japanese spot with everything from fresh sushi and unique small plates, to a hibachi dinner that manages to strike a balance between corny and delicious. And while you’re still mad that no one surprised you with a face cake, the onion volcano and beating heart fried rice should make up for it.
