Preparation of our signature steaks start with our chef, Tadaaki Ishizaki (formerly at Michelin 3 Star restaurant, Joel Robuchon Tokyo) hand selecting each piece of prime USDA beef at the purveyor. Then, it is dry aged for 28 days before charcoal-grilling using our unique crank grill. As a result, it is a super tender steak with all of the umami trapped inside.
