Formerly Panda Buffet, Chen Hibachi offers American, authentic Chinese, Chinese and Japanese items at its all-you-can-eat buffet. New on the menu — a hibachi grill and sushi bar. Open for both lunch and dinner. Kids prices, too. Chen Hibachi is located inside the Golden Triangle Shopping Center next to Lotte Plaza.
Frisco Tap House
6695 Dobbin Road, Columbia
The re-named Frisco Grille brings with it a new location, larger space and double the beer on tap (50 varieties to be exact), plus 30 more domestic and imported bottled beers. An expanded menu will be launched in early spring but regulars can still get Mexican-style appetizers plus sandwiches, burgers, fish, steak and fajitas. Gift certificates can be won on Trivia Tuesdays.
