A few years ago, my brother notified myself and @thelonelyisland that @tyrese had built a private Benihana restaurant at his home. Last night, @tyrese made our dreams come true and we celebrated @thecarolinagentleman's birthday at the one and only - GIBSIHANA!!!! TO BE CLEAR - THIS IS NOT A BENIHANA. THIS IS A RESTAURANT IN @TYRESE'S BACKYARD. IT IS AMAZING. (Video by @davidcho)
2016 is clearly Aziz Ansari's year.
Why? It's not that Master of None took home the award for Best Comedy at the Critics' Choice Awards or that he received a Golden Globe nomination; It's that he finally got an invitation—and accepted—to dine at Tyrese Gibson's Benihana-style restaurant Gibsihana, located in the Furious 7 star's backyard.
Yes, you read that properly, Gibson has a hibachi-style restaurant in his backyard, and Aziz got to enjoy it with his brother, Aniz Ansari, and The Lonely Island. Aniz first let the Parks & Recreation star of the restaurant's existence "a few years ago," and after relentless attempts on Twitter, Aziz and his brother finally got to go, and the results are magnificent.
Aziz posted two epic videos from his evening at Gibsihana, and in one he caught a piping hot shrimp in his mouth with David Guetta's "Titanium" playing in the background. The other guests' reactions alone make it a night to remember. If that wasn't exciting enough for Aziz and Aniz, then the collective rendition of "Bugatti" by Ace Hood definitely brought it to the next level.
