Miami-Based Benihana Might Get Bought Out

Categories: News
Benihana, the Japanese restaurant chain best known for cooking your food in front of you and being founded by DJ Steve Aoki's dad, is actually based right here in Miami. Doral to be exact.

Apparently, though, it might get bought out. RDG Capital has offered the company $150 million in a buy-out offer. The deal includes wiping out the chain's debt. Shares have risen by 8 percent based on the news, reaching a seven-month high. The company has formed a committee to look into the offer and other alternatives.

Benihana was founded in New York City by Hiroaki "Rocky" Aoki, who's also known for fathering one annoying DJ and another, somewhat likable model.
