When we last visited Valley Stream’s favorite hibachi restaurant, Inatome, they were a few days away from their re-opening. Stricken by a fire on Halloween three years ago, they rebuilt better than ever. Although we had an exclusive photo tour of the restaurant, we needed to return to actually experience the food; and what a wonderful meal it was.
Among the many restaurants that are in Rockville Centre sits its newest shining star, Kashi Japanese. A sister-restaurant to their other busy location on the north shore’s equivalent to Rockville Centre, Huntington Village (both with busy village atmospheres), Kashi will make you feel blue, but not in the way that you might be thinking.
When Inatome suffered a fire on October 31, 2010, the entire structure was affected and we weren’t quite sure if they would open their doors again to the general public. That answer came to us a few days ago when we learned that after an exhaustive 15 months of construction and upgrades, Inatome is back, and better than ever.
Of all the restaurants on Long Island, Shiro of Japan may be the one that we visit the most. Located in the ground floor of the office building that East of NYC is based out of, we’re visiting them on an average of once per week for lunch and we sometimes stop in for dinner, as well.
