Two new sushi rolls, the Green with Envy Roll and Rising Sun Roll, are also sure to please palates and are each available for $8.
Headquartered in Miami, Benihana Inc. is the nation’s leading operator of Japanese theme and sushi restaurants with 96 restaurants nationwide, including 64 Benihana restaurants, seven Haru sushi restaurants and 26 RA Sushi restaurants. In addition, 15 franchised Benihana restaurants are operating in the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean.
The company was founded in 1964 on West 56th Street in New York City by 25-year-old Hiroaki “Rocky” Aoki.
Aoki, a wrestler who had qualified for but did not attend the 1960 Summer Olympics, started the restaurant with $10,000 earned from driving an ice cream truck in Harlem. The first restaurant, Benihana of Tokyo, was named for the red Safflower that was the name for the coffee shop owned by his parents in Tokyo.
