Dinner and a Scare

Dinner and a Scare

Last night, I celebrated a friend's birthday at the Japanese restaurant Ninja New York. I had heard of this restaurant before, but with a little research I learned that the waitstaff aren't only dressed as Ninjas, but their main objective is to frighten patrons. When I got to the restaurant, I was determined to be fearless, which was a tab but difficult right from the start. When you get to the restaurant, you take a large elevator to the dining area. Once off of the elevator, you are given two options on how to get to your table. My party chose a long, windy tunnel that resembled a cave (think a haunted house where you don't know what's around every corner). A few ninjas surprised us by popping out of the shadows, but nothing you can't handle. When we got to our table, our enthusiastic waiter was very attentive and the food was pretty substantial. The best part of the evening? Eddie the Magician. Eddie is a historical magician and shared with us Magic tricks that date back more than 400 years (think peanut under a cup and other sleight of  hand tricks). If you like a scare and a good meal, check out Ninja New York.
