Benihana Inc. on Thursday debuted a September special consisting of a five-course filet mignon and hibachi chicken dinner for two priced at $46.
The teppanyaki-style “Hibachi Steak & Chicken for Two” special includes filet mignon and hibachi chicken, Benihana onion soup, Benihana salad, hibachi shrimp appetizer, mushrooms, hibachi vegetables, homemade dipping sauces, steamed rice and Japanese hot green tea.
For customers who prefer solo ordering, Benihana is offering a five-course meal for one featuring hibachi mango salmon for $21.
The meal includes salmon with an Asian-inspired mango salsa, sweet potatoes, vegetables, onion soup, salad, hibachi shrimp appetizer, dipping sauces, steamed rice and Japanese hot green tea.
Benihana said both specials will be offered through the end of September at most locations. The Hibachi Steak & Chicken for Two will not be offered at the Las Vegas and Hawaii locations.
The casual-dining segment continues to see a number of such “two-fer” specials, following on the heels of Applebee’s “2 for $20” and Chili’s $20 Dinner for Two,” both of which are still being promoted.
In addition, P.F. Chang’s China Bistro has offered special-occasion dinners for two at $39.95, and BJ’s Restaurants is now touting a “Party for Two” at $19.95.
