Shabu-Tatsu Downtown Restaurant Review

: Pretend you’re a chef for a night and visit this interactive downtown institution where you’ll prepare (shabu-shabu) your own meats and veggies at your table. The process? Dip paper-thin pieces of meat into boiling water; as it cooks, it creates a broth to accompany the meat and veggies. It requires a hands-on approach, so wear short sleeves. That’s about it as far as the menu is concerned, so don’t expect a wide variety of options if you’re not prepared to get your hands dirty.
