Putting Us on the Map - Here at Townsquare Media, we have a new series called Townsquare Tour de Tristate. Each month, we're featuring some of the wild and crazy things that really put the tristate, its people, its restaurants, businesses, and landmarks on the map. And there's no doubt that THIS is one of those things.

It's been two decades in the making but Evansville Chef, Marvin Abadicio has opened the doors on his dream - a restaurant serving traditional Japanese hibachi, sushi, and ramen all under one roof.

Domo Japanese Hibachi Sushi and Ramen just hosted their grand opening earlier this month as they opened their doors in their new location on North Green River Road in Evansville, but owner and chef, Marvin Abadicio is no stranger to those of us who enjoy eating sushi.

I first met Marvin about five years ago at another local sushi restaurant. Marvin has worked in a couple of different restaurants in the city before stretching his culinary wings and to say that I have been anxiously awaiting the day that he opened the doors on his dream would be an understatement.

When I had dinner at Marvin's new restaurant (twice) last week he told me this has always been his dream - to own a restaurant serving traditional Japanese hibachi, sushi, and ramen all under one roof. It felt like I was experiencing his dream with him as he beamed, telling the table about the recipes he uses for his ramen and how the edamame that we enjoyed is the same recipe that he enjoys at home with his own family.

If you've never eaten a meal prepared by Marvin, you are surely missing out. His love and passion for his craft are evident in every roll and every bowl and plate served at Domo. I cannot wait to go back again to experience the hibachi grill. I have no doubt it is going to be nothing short of delicious. Find Domo Japanese Hibachi Grill, Sushi & Ramen at 215 North Green River Road in Evansville and on Facebook but for now, keep scrolling to see some of the delicious Japanese cuisines that Marvin is serving up.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
