Be your own chef for a night as you enjoy a steamy dish sure to warm you up on a brisk New York evening!
Starting today, you can now enjoy Shabu-Shabu, an interactive, Japanese-style hot pot, for the first time ever at MakiMaki’s outdoor patio (located at 1369 6th Ave).
This dish of thinly sliced meat and vegetables cooked on the spot serves two people per pot.
This traditional Japanese dish is known for engaging everyone at the dinner table. Meat and vegetables stew on a hot pot in a delicious broth as everyone gets to take part in the cooking. Once ready, the dish is normally known to incorporate a variety of dipping sauces.
At MakiMaki, visitors will be able to reserve their very own little outdoor fire as personal burners at each table are equipped to allow guests to cook their own food. Table hours are offered daily at 5 p.m., 6:30 p.m., and 8 p.m.
Beyond the numerous dining options offered and ranging prices such as thinly-sliced A-5 Wagyu Strip Loin from Miyazaki ($65/person), Santa Carota USDA Prime Ribeye ($35/person), Hybrid of Miyazaki and Santa Carota Steak ($50/person), and Vegetarian Season Vegetables ($25/person), Shabu-Shabu offers much more to each diner.
Guests can aenjoy or add-on any broth, ponzu sauce, tofu, glass noodles, or seasonal vegetables. And for those with a sweet tooth, order some mochi ice cream for dessert!
MakiMaki opened in 2017 when founder, Kevin Takarada, realized there were no suitable high quality, fast sushi options in Midtown. Now his sushi bar brings “premium sushi made with state-of-the-art robotics — pioneering a delicious and convenient new fast-casual model,” right to the area for all to enjoy.
Reservations can be made through OpenTable or by calling 212-245-4550.
