Mark’s take: If the thought of a Japanese steakhouse sounds appealing to you, then you are in luck. Why? There’s one right in Carmel. Koto Japanese Steak House is a stylishly elegant dining experience. Furnished in lush Japanese decor, this restaurant offers a variety of Japanese cuisine in your choice of settings: restaurant or hibachi. Appetizers, soups, salads, and a wide array of entrees are what you will find at Koto. Whether it’s a family, couple, or group of friends, this is a must destination.
What to get: It’s hard to grasp the bevy of great entrees, but for me, the shrimp tempura is always a winner. As with the other entrees, this comes with soup and salad. The portions run large and are very filling. I highly recommend it.
What’s the cost: Entrees run $10 to $30.
