December 2020 Harmony Steak House goes beyond the boundaries of taste—it’s an exceptional dining experience. The newly opened Japanese steak house boasts authenticity in a nontraditional way. The owners, Ren Yang and his wife Lin Guo, are successful restaurateurs in both the Indianapolis area and in Chicago and are excited about their latest venture—Harmony Steak House—located in Whitestown at The Shoppes at Anson. A Tale of Growing Multiple Businesses The Yang’s latest restaurant offers an expansive menu of traditional Japanese cuisine and Asian Fusion that features superb quality ingredients, creative sushi entrees, entertaining hibachi, all in a casual environment that is both elegant and family-friendly. Their dedication to the highest standards of food and customer service is what drives the Yangs’ success. They opened two of their six restaurants (Meet Noodles and Tsaocaa Indy) in the Castleton area in 2018 and 2019 and began looking at the Zionsville/Whitestown area in 2018. “We had been watching the development since 2018, and we wanted to move to the Zionsville/Whitestown area and open a nice, elegant, sit-down restaurant,” Ren shared. “We like the area for its communities, schools and because it feels comfortable.” The Yang’s began the interior construction of Harmony Steak House in 2020. Although the project was delayed by a couple of month’s due to the pandemic, the couple was thrilled to complete the construction in November and officially open at the end of November. The pair are working fervently to build up their staff and levels of service to the exceptional standards that they are used to providing their customers while contending with the pandemic and required safety protocols. Traditional and Asian Fusion Cuisine Redefined In addition to an inviting and kid-friendly atmosphere, Harmony Steak House consists of three dining experiences: the main kitchen, the sushi bar and the hibachi grill. Each brings flavor and fun to the dining experience. The talented culinary crew at Harmony creates an array of colorful and brilliant sushi displays made up of hand-wrapped sushi rolls and first-rate sashimi. In addition to Harmony’s signature and classic rolls, the menu also features some locally influenced creations such as the Whitestown and the Zionsville rolls, featuring colors to represent the communities. Another signature sushi roll, the Harmony Signature Roll, is a delectable roll that combines the taste variations of shrimp tempura, spicy crab meat, avocado, Jalapeno, topped with seared filet steak slices, spicy mayo and Chef’s special sauce—yes, please! If you’re looking for an entertaining and delicious dining experience, be sure to try one of Harmony’s hibachi combo. Or any of the exquisite appetizers, teriyaki entrees and Japanese-style ramen noodle dishes that pair beautifully with Harmony’s signature cocktails or traditional sake that is offered in addition to its full bar, stocked with an impressive collection of top-shelf spirits. Ren added, “We tried to create something a little bit different . It has a different design, and we carry a lot of Japanese-style sake, traditional signature Japanese cocktails, but you can order any kind of cocktails and spirits at the bar.” In addition to Harmony’s exceptional dine-in experience, people can enjoy its full menu via carryout by visiting the website and placing an order online. Special event catering is also available! “We continue to work at improving not just our food but our service,” Lin emphasized. “We are happy that people have been enjoying the atmosphere of our restaurant because we think that’s the most important thing we can bring to our customers. People are not just looking for good food. They can buy fast food or make their own food at home, but people go out to eat because they’re looking for a place to go to feel happy and comfortable.” So, if you’re looking for a delicious lunch or dinner in a casual, family-friendly atmosphere, come out and try Harmony Steak House and help us welcome Ren and Lin to the community.
