  • President Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe dined at the teppanyaki restaurant Ginza Ukai Tei during Trump's visit to Japan.
  • The restaurant's parent company saw its stock climb by as much as 7.3% on Monday after Trump's visit.
  • Ginza Ukai Tei's menu is inspired by French cuisine, and the restaurant features a dedicated dessert room.

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 specializes 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.
