About the restaurant
Toraji is a “yakiniku” style BBQ restaurant.

Since our first shop has been established in 1995 in Tokyo, Ebisu area, we came a long way.

Starting with “namuru” and “kimchi” Korean style steamed and pickeled vegetables, continuing with tongue, ribs and/or outside skirt, finishing with cold noodles or “pibimpab” Korean style mixed rice bowl. We are commited to provide you the “yakiniku” you want for the days you feel like having a “yakiniku”.

We as pros won`t do any compromise in terms of ingredients, taste or service, Toraji will continue to promote the right way the yakiniku culture, bringing taste, happiness and health to our customers.

About the restaurant
Newsday calls Christos "An Astoria Steak House of Style and Substance" Zagat writes, "The top-of-the-line surf-n-turf "rocks" at this smartly served Steak House that's "worth a trip over the bridge." A "large selection of prime-aged meats" comes prepared to perfection", backed up with traditional Greek sides"

Porterhouse steak for two was excellent --but extremely costly and should have come with complimentary sides for that price. Staff was very attentive and accommodating. I would have had a 2 lb lobster but it was $60 per pound! I think Christos might rise from the dead if he saw the current menu! Overall, it was an experience -- but not likely to be repeated, unfortunately.

About the restaurant
Campania Coal Fired Pizza specializes in exactly what its name implies: delicious pizza cooked in a coal oven to produce a unique smoky texture to the crust and toppings. This special method of cooking pizza imparts certain flavors that simply can't be replicated by using a wood burning stove or other method of heating. Diners simply need to taste for themselves the difference Campania's incredibly hot coal-fired grill makes Campania's pizza menu comes with a build-your-own pizza option as well as several signature house recipes. Some of the delicious pizzas diners can try out are the Margherita, Buffalo Chicken and the Calabrese with tomato sauce, hot soppressata, mozzarella, pecorino romano and basil. If guests aren't in the mood for pizza they can also order one of the sandwiches like the chicken parmigiana or the Napoli with grilled chicken, mozzarella and a made-from-scratch pesto sauce.

Everything was great! The lobster pasta is almost a meal in itself. Took 1/2 of it home. And the Branzino with eghplant purée was also excellent-cleaned the plate. For dessert I had the Pana cota and was amazed-not too sweet . Can’t wait to return.
