Jomon Japanese BBQ
Jomon Japanese BBQ, which features yakiniku-style table grilling, would be a great place to take every person who has BBQ Pitmasters saved on their DVR. Yes, you get to cook your own food, but everything is accompanied by bland sauces that are probably from the international aisle at Acme, while the grill’s heat element is so inconsistent that you may end up simultaneously overcooking your A5 wagyu steak and undercooking the vegetables. The Midtown Village restaurant—from the owner of neighboring Aki Nom Nom Sushi & Ramen—has an a la carte menu and a $49 all-you-can-eat option that includes options like curry chicken and angus beef rib. While the idea of a Center City date under $100 sounds appealing, skip the DIY dinner and head somewhere else in the neighborhood.
