The aromas wafting from Garlic Jo's can literally be detected from blocks away. This location is the Japanese restaurant chain's only outpost in the U.S. The menu here is difficult to pin down, as it is Japanese at its core but also features fusion dishes that incorporate aspects of everything from Italian to American cooking. Signature dishes include steak topped with garlic sauce, garlic thin-crust pizza, garlic-laden vegetable fried rice and grilled ahi with garlic lemon butter sauce; Even the décor's garlic-themed, with garlic bulbs hanging from small sacks on the walls. The dining area has an elegant yet casual feel with white table clothes, dark woods and a tile floor. The tables are easily adaptable to groups of all sizes.
