A taste of Japan will soon be coming to Zanesville.
The hot-irons may be cool now but come a couple weeks the Ichiban Japanese Steak House will be fired-up and ready to entertain. Manager Tian Chen has been renovating the location for about 9 months and said the unique atmosphere is something unlike any other in Zanesville.
"Seeing the cooking shows going on, it's more than just dinning," said Chen. "Sometimes its considered entertainment."
Chen said it's a style growing in popularity and despite rumors the new restaurant is not part of a chain. He said it just seems that "Ichiban" is a popular name for Japanese Steak Houses. The restaurant will feature both lunches and dinners with prices varying between $7 and $30.
"We do some sushi, if you are a sushi lover you're more than welcome to come," said Chen. "We do some Chinese also like little lunches and stuff like that."
Ichiban Japanese Steak House is located at 2542 Maple Avenue- just across from Burger King and next to Family Video.
