Fire & Ice
50 Church St., Cambridge, (617) 547-9007.
Fast, fun, and flexible. Fire & Ice crosses Benihana with a salad bar, so you mix and match ingredients and sauces for a stir-fry on their eight-foot circular open griddle. As long as you remember that too much variety cancels out the flavors, you can eat well and as much as you want. Loud, youngish tone does not disguise the "ice" -- drinks and beers -- side of the equation.
Price range for entrées: $13.75. -
