Now that it is becoming increasingly difficult for us to check out new restaurants in New York City - the 60 mile drive somewhat demands that we end up in a tried and tested place, rather than meandering into (our, yet) unchartered waters, I should follow suit from the Dabbawalla review, and have a few more notable places in the great suburbs writted up.

Here's one of our favourite places for a show and dinner - Wasabi Hibachi, in downtown Farmingdale. If you are coming off 495 exit 49 / 110 S / Route 24 West, it's left off the third light - and if you turn left into the rear parking lot of the strip mall just before you reach the light, then you are at the perfect spot.

Hibachi presentations probably demand spaces that are unavailable in the City - or it may be that I just haven't yet seen where they are hidden. We discovered this place from a coupon that we came across, and have visited several times in the last year or so.

The menu is pretty obvious - hibachi chicken, shrimp, steak, and so on. The chirashi was nice, and so was the sushi platter. If you are ordering hibachi, it helps if you order fried rice with your order, and a side of noodles, or the other way around. The noodles and fried rice are done really to our liking.
