Do you have an upcoming party event that requires something a little out of the ordinary? If so, consider holding your party at Nakato. We are a Japanese style restaurant with locations in Charlotte, N.C. and Springfield, Mo. that features great food, culinary entertainment and a fun, casual atmosphere.
The fun begins with a tantalizing array of tasty Japanese style appetizers. The way we do appetizers is we select fresh seafood, beef or chicken, vegetables and spices and lightly fry them in a coating until they are just crisp. Appetizers are accented with teriyaki or ginger sauce that have just the right amount of tangy sweet flavor. Some of our popular appetizers are Bacon Wrapped Scallops with wasabi aiolo and asparagus tempura, Agedashi Tofu or fried tofu with grated ginger sauce, Shrimp Tempura with vegetables and Jumbo Ebi Fry, which is fried prawn with a crisp panko bread coating.
For your guests that enjoy eating sushi we are a popular sushi bar in Charlotte and Springfield. Choose sushi appetizers such as our Hawaiian Poke Salad with a choice of salmon or tuna, Baked Mussels with spicy aioli, the Atlantic Fried Roll with asparagus and seafood or the Three Handroll Combo that includes tuna, salmon skin and sea eel. Many people also enjoy our delectable sushi rolls. Among popular Nakato favorites are the Big Roll with crab, smelt roe and squash, Carolina with crab, asparagus and spicy aiolo, Superman with snow crab, tuna, avocado and chili sauce and Fantasy with crab, smelt wrapped in soybean paper. Everyone can order individual sushi plates or go for our sushi and sashimi plates with a melting pot of pieces.
What’s a party without quality spirits? Nakato provides guests with a wide array of premium wine and sake selections. In the wine category, there is our special house wine selection featuring Chardonnay, Cabernet, Merlot and White Zinfendel. Our extended wine selections include fine red, white and blush wines. If the celebration calls for sparkling wine we have that on hand as well. The more adventurous among the crowd may want to explore our hot and cold sake selections. We have authentic Japanese sake with like Dreamy Clouds and Living Jewel. We haven’t left out the beer lovers. We offer both domestic American and imported popular brands. And, there’s draft beer too.
If you and your guests would like some “stick to your ribs” food, come and enjoy a Tappan Yaki meal featuring grilled chicken, steak or seafood. Because we are a Japanese steakhouse with locations in Charlotte and Springfield, anyone that loves a tender, juicy New York Strip Steak will be very happy they came to your party. All of our meat and seafood is served fresh and hot off the grill. Oh, and when it comes to meal preparation, well, Nakato is hard to beat for live culinary entertainment. Our chef makes everyone’s meal at the table while guests watch him perform his special cooking tricks.
