Onion volcano eruption

Celebrating with family at Benihana!

We got there super early and filled up a table. All my photos are blurrier than this one.

It’s been so long since I’d been here — I kept noticing all the little differences… grape tomatoes in the salad and replacing the ginger sauce with double Yum Yum sauce for the meal (sacrilege!). But other than that? It was just as it was, with maybe a musty smell covered up by Pine Sol that quickly dissipated once the grill was fired up.

I never remembered a dress code. It was featured prominently in the reservation process.

Examples of unacceptable attire include:

  • Flip flops, slippers, bare or sock feet (shoes, sneakers, or sandals must be worn at all times)
  • Swimsuits/bathing suits; bathing suit cover ups
  • Torn, ragged, soiled clothing or shoes; clothing emitting offensive odors
  • Gym attire; jogging or biking shorts (leggings are permissible)
  • Tank tops (sleeveless tops with straps less than 2” wide and a scooped neckline reaching 3”below the sternum), spandex, sports bras, muscle shirts, body suits, tube or halter tops
  • Clothing with offensive language and/or graphics
  • Excessively revealing clothing; clothing made with offensive material (i.e., transparent)
  • Exposed undergarments or lingerie
  • Clothing which exposes inappropriate portions of the body such as string bikini tops, G-strings,bikini bottoms, and skirts or shorts that do not cover one’s entire bottom when seated
  • Adult costumes or clothing that can be viewed as a costume (children under age 9 are excluded)

Luckily they didn’t notice our infractions.
