Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar

Fine Dining in Springfield Missouri & Charlotte North Carolina: A Culinary Adventure

Nakato Japanese Steakhouse has been a family owned restaurant for over 30 years. We opened our first of two restaurants in Charlotte North Carolina in 1976 and then later in 1995 we were pleased to open our restaurant in Springfield Missouri and we have been a part of the fine dining landscape in both cites ever since. In the first of a two part series we invite you through the doors of our Springfield location for a unique dining experience.
