    Sad Yamabuki Meet Saturday Night Dinner...no One Else

    Did find out some new information some good some bad!

    Good news is that the servers will no longer have to wear the those hot kimonos. Now they will be in slacks and a Yamabuki shirt.

    Bad news...for the six weeks most will have to go work at other restauarants around DTD or parks and some will be on standby. Not good when you are full time.

    Good news is that the entire facilities will be renovated with new decor to match the 2000s and have a more asian look to it. The sushi bar will still be available for those of you requiring a quick sushi fix.

    Bad news....they are moving away from a combo style lunch and dinner and going to an ala carte menu. This means that you will have to mix and match the items you want for your dinner. Also means it could potentially be MORE expensive! Hopefully food quality will remain the same.

    There also may be shabu shabu (Benihana of Tokyo style) seating so if you come with a group you can all sit together and watch the chef prepare your meal. This is a maybe though!
    Looking forward to the new changes.

    The title of your thread kinda confuses me.....are you trying to set up a meet, or just update us on information. Thanks for the info update, but just curious?!

    Thanks for the update. I'm glad the sushi bar is staying! Slight correction: The type of showy grill cooking at Benihana is teppan yaki. Shabu shabu is hot pot cooking that generally done by the diners themselves (and already on Yamabuki's menu).

    The move away from combo dinners doesn't bother me...most of the really top-notch Japanese places are a la carte unless you choose "omakase" (many small courses selected by the chef). I do think offering some sort of lunch combos might still be a good idea (ie, bento boxes).

    Darn it--now I'm craving their food and I'm 2000 miles away. Waaaa.
