For dessert, indulge in tiramisu, chocolate mousse, or cannoli.  Wash it down with some beer, wine, a fountain drink, espresso drink, or iced tea.

Kobe Japanese Steakhouse

You’ll want to make a reservation to dine at this popular restaurant, and keep in mind it’s one of the more expensive on the list, but you're paying for the entertainment of your chef cooking your food in front of you as well as the food itself.

If you’re in the mood for it, imbibe mai-tais, pina coladas, margaritas, beer, and sake. For non-alcoholic options, there are a variety of delicious teas and boba drinks.
