Opening late this year, Kasai, which opened in Brooklyn this past fall as the only kosher hibachi restaurant in the NYC region, will be opening a second location in Lawrence, NY on Central Ave. in the 5 Towns.
Since Kasai’s Brooklyn opening, 2 other kosher hibachi restaurants have popped up in the NYC area: Sushi Fussion opened a hibachi/sushi restaurant hybrid, and MeO is in process of opening a similar hibachi steakhouse and sushi restaurant in Queens.
The 5 Towns Kasai will be the fourth Glatt Kosher hibachi restaurant opening in about a year.
The new restaurant will contain a bar (including full liquor license), sushi bar, and 10 hibachi tables, some big enough to hold parties of 15-20 people. Altogether, the restaurant will seat 130 patrons.
While Kasai in Brooklyn is kosher under the supervision of Kehillah Kashrus, Kasai’s owner has confirmed that they will seek the local 5 Towns Vaad hashgacha.
Kasai has been successful in Brooklyn by offering a unique experience for diners that combines unique foods and a show.
Here’s an example of the type of show their chefs provide diners in Brooklyn:
[Regarding location: the owner has asked us not to publicize the location, but it will be at a large Central Ave. space in Lawrence. We will update the official address in the coming weeks.]
