The Japanese culinary art of gyu-kaku allows diners to get in on the action. Instead of the chef searing your Japanese barbecue, the kitchen team simply preps it, and then a server delivers it to your table. You take over from there, cooking the meat to your exact liking over a charcoal grill in the center of your table. The newly opened Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ recreates this traditional experience for the eaters of DC and Arlington.
Don’t worry if you’re not a pro chef. The menu comes with a guide that tells you exactly how long to grill each piece of meat, depending on your preferences and the thickness of the cut. You can order a prix fixe smorgasbord of meats or choose your favorites a la carte. Some of the steaks age for up to 21 days to bring out their natural flavors, like the bistro hanger steak and the premium sirloin, so make sure to sample these high-quality meats.
