  About Shabu-Tatsu:      

Since opening in 1991, Shabu-Tatsu has served over ten thousand customers. Thanks to your patronage, Shabu-Tatsu has become a mecca for shabu-shabu aficionados and a staple restaurant in the East Village.

Shabu-shabu is a type of Japanese hotpot. Similar to sukiyaki, thinly sliced meat and fresh vegetables are cooked in a special broth bubbling in a pot. The meat and vegetables can then be dipped into Shabu-Tatsu’s homemade sauces and enjoyed.

In addition to the shabu-shabu, customers come for the savory Japanese style BBQ and sukiyaki as well as the seasonal assortment of appetizers.

Whether for an intimate date, a family gathering or post-work powwow, visit Shabu-Tatsu to experience the unique, “Do-It-Yourself” hotpot meal.

Zagat New York

Decently priced ''Japanese comfort food'' that you ''cook yourself'' is the draw at this simple East Village ''hot pot '' specialist that both fun for the family and a great ice-breaker for first dates.

New York Magazine

Do-it-yourself dining for fondue fetishists at this dual-location Japanese raw-meat mecca whose titular signature dish involves placing wafer-thin slices of beef into boiling hot water alongside fresh vegetables, tofu and vermicelli glass noodles. As the beef cooks, the water becomes a broth-like brew, infusing the whole affair with a savory rush of flavors and aromas. Perfect for that awkward first date in which you can't find anything to do with your hands except shred your napkin into oblivion under the table. Shabu-Tatsu is messy fun for a generation of foodies who were denied the interactive delights of the sorely lamented fondue pot, that recently resurrected staple of the bad-taste seventies. For non-adventurous won't-shares, Shabu-Tatsu also features non-interactive fare like Bibim Bop cooked in stoneware and assorted Japanese barbecue dishes. — Andy Bailey
