Benihana of Tokyo 1 “Some restaurateurs like myself have more fun than others” s ays Hiroaki (Rocky) Aoki, founder and former president of Benihana of Tokyo, a restaurant chain with a fifty year history. The first Benihana restaurant was opened in Manhattan in 1964, now there are over 100 restaurants in twenty countries world wide. Benihana is basically a steakhouse with a difference: the food is cooked in front of the customer by Japanese chefs, on a „habachi‟ grill. The chefs are trained to not only cook the food but also entertain the customers, so that the cooking is a memorable part of the experience. When customers enter the restaurant they are met in the bar by a „maitre d‟ who asks them how many members are in the group, and invites the guests to buy a drink while they wait for a table. Benihana specialise in cocktails with names with Japanese associations, like „Bons ai Blitz . In the restaurant the tables are set up in a U-shape around the grill, for 8 guests; each chef is responsible for a pair of tables. Groups of less than eight guests are invited to share a table with other customers . The „maitre d‟ arranges the groups while customers enjoy their drink.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
