If the name isn't enough of a hook, this restaurant's pan-Asian menu offers plenty to please various palates.
Despite its curious name, this place has nothing to do with exotic Asian dancers, although the owner says she regularly gets such requests. And, no, you don't have to be an expert with chopsticks to enjoy a meal here; each place is considerately set with a knife and fork. The menu is a blend of offerings from China, Japan, Korea, and Southeast Asia. Naturally, fish and seafood figure prominently, and all of it is flown in daily from Hawaii. Naked Tchopstik's lounge is a popular after-work watering hole. In addition to the customary libations, sake features in several of the drinks, including an Asian mojito, martinis made with sake and a drink that mixes sake with beer. Sushi-lovers can not only indulge their taste buds here, they can also learn how to make it at "sushi for sissies" classes taught by the owner. Students learn to prepare 10 varieties, including the ubiquitous California roll and the restaurant's most popular, the Flaming Playboy Roll containing shrimp tempura, asparagus, and rice.
