President Donald Trump has been quick to point to the performance of the American economy, the stock market in particular, as the crowning achievement of his presidency thus far. While the extent to which he deserves credit for the economic indicators he cites is up for debate, his presence has had a tangible effect on at least one business, but it’s not American.
During his trip to Japan, Trump dined with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at Ginza Ukai Tei, which specialises in teppanyaki, a style of Japanese cuisine in which chefs cook meat and vegetables on an iron griddle. The restaurant’s parent company, Ukai Co., saw its stock climb as much as 7.3% on Monday after Trump’s visit, according to Forbes.
Here’s what it’s like to eat at the restaurant.
The restaurant pays special attention to its decor, which it describes as 'an atmosphere where art-nouveau and Japanese style meet.'
Rather than order individual dishes, customers choose from multi-dish 'Grand Courses' or 'Lunch Courses.'
President Trump and Prime Minister Abe ate from a special menu that featured the restaurant's highest-quality steak, grilled Hokkaido scallop, and a chocolate sundae.
