Hibachi & hot rocks

What was once Shogun Hibachi Bistro has now transformed into NARA Hibachi & Hot Rocks, a hibachi and stone grilling restaurant, bar, and lounge at 5656 W. Maple Road in West Bloomfield. “All the ingredients are fresh, nothing is outsourced, and they butcher everything on property, so all the meats are hand cut,” said general manager Trina Gegovic. “It’s really just great food and a great atmosphere.” She said the restaurant has two entirely different spaces once inside. On one side are the hibachi tables with group seating of about 10; on the other is the lounge area, which Gegovic described as a little bit more sophisticated. Chefs Howard Barnes and Teddy Quinones’ menu includes food with an Asian flare, like their Katsu sliders and hibachi. Guests can also cook their own meat yakitori style, done on a 824-degree stone rock.
