In the world of Japanese steakhouses, showing off is everything. Cleavers are tossed, fires started, food thrown at the mouths of eager diners. It's not everyone's cup of tea, but we think all the drama and laughter make for a great time. At Lin's Hibachi, which opened in Havre de Grace in early February, the showmanship was on point, though service from the background crew - those not directly involved with the cooking - faltered occasionally. But thanks to food that was both nicely cooked and delivered with a laugh, dinner at Lin's was a satisfying blast.

If you love grilling food but don't have a large family to cook for, do your grilling on a hibachi. You'll have all the flavor of grilled food but use only a fraction of the space and fuel. You'll get coals going in half the time.To get the best use of your hibachi, remember that it is designed for direct-heat cooking. Avoid large pieces of meat that require indirect heat and a cover. Instead, choose foods such as boneless chicken breasts, steaks, fish fillets or vegetables that are done in minutes.

Maruha, a Japanese steakhouse, opened last year in Columbia's Hickory Ridge shopping center in space that used to be a Blockbuster. I'm glad someone told me that, because I did think it was strange when the waitress told me I had to … I know there's a good video store-Japanese restaurant joke out there somewhere, maybe something about rewinding, but I just can't come up with it, and it's killing me.

As 2006 kicks off, a couple of Baltimore hangouts are hoping to combine the old with the new. In the basement of the Belvedere Hotel, Kamikazis has just opened where Kobe Teppan closed last November. It, too, is a sushi/hibachi Japanese restaurant. And it, too, is hoping to hook B-more's late-night crowd. But Kamikazis manager Hillary Herlehy says she and owner James C. Foster hope to ratchet things up a notch. To start with, Herlehy says they've tried to give the place a slightly more "energetic feel."

OK, I agree Kamikazis isn't the greatest name for a new restaurant, given the large proportion of new restaurants that crash and burn. But it does suggest that this is not your typical Japanese steakhouse. For some reason, hibachi cooking has always been more of a hit in the suburbs than in Baltimore city, maybe because it lends itself to high jinks and family fun. (I don't really like having food thrown at me, even by an artiste; but Nichi Bei Kai in Lutherville was my daughter's favorite restaurant when she was little.

Sometimes the only thing that seems to differentiate Baltimore's Japanese steakhouses is the hibachi chef's hand-eye coordination. I'm not sure that's a good thing. I'd like to say it's the quality of the food. But for the record, Hibachi's hibachi chef gets an A plus for being entertaining without flipping food at me. Once we get to the point where guests are expected to catch shrimp in their mouths like seals, I'm outta there. Kids are the exception. Drunken college kids are not. Our chef could do all the usual tricks -- balancing an egg on the edge of a spatula and then breaking it in one fluid motion, creating a volcano out of onion rings by lighting the oil inside -- but he could also flip a lemon wedge and have it land in his pocket (better his than mine)

Towson is the closest thing the Baltimore area has to a Little Japan, what with all the sushi places and Japanese restaurants that have opened up there in the last few years. Add one more to the list: the new Fuji, which is a low-key, family-run neighborhood version of the popular hibachi grill restaurants. I, for one, found it restful. Most of these slice-and-dice-while-you-watch Japanese steakhouses are high energy -- and pricey. At Fuji, you get the same show on a smaller scale and much the same food; but it's quieter, cozier and less expensive.

If there were such a thing as a neighborhood Japanese steakhouse and sushi bar -- the way there are neighborhood restaurants and neighborhood bars -- the new Ginza in Yorktowne Plaza would be it. Ginza is many of the things you don't expect in a Japanese steakhouse: It's low key, with comfortable but not exciting surroundings and easy-listening music in the background. People dress casually to come here, and the place is pretty much unknown outside the immediate neighborhood, or so our hostess told us. Weekends are busy, but weeknights you can eat in relative quiet and then linger over cups of hot, fragrant jasmine tea for as long as you want.

So why is the restaurant critic of the Baltimore Sun laughing and holding a napkin in front of her face? Or perhaps the question is: Why is the chef throwing rice and shrimp at her? Maybe the answer seems self-evident. Probably any number of chefs would like to pelt me with food. But no, it's not personal. The staff at Jillian's Hibachi Grill don't know who I am and wouldn't care if they did. The chefs throw food at everybody -- even Harold, a passerby who foolishly sticks his head into the dining room to see what's going on. (Just in case it isn't clear, your whole dinner isn't thrown at you; just some of the rice and the after-the-main-course shrimp.
