Gyu-Kaku, a Japanese BBQ restaurant specializing in yakiniku-style tableside grilling, is coming to Charlotte.
The chain has 700 restaurants worldwide, including 50+ U.S. locations in places like Beverly Hills, San Diego, Las Vegas, New York City, Atlanta and Miami.
The Charlotte restaurant will be located at 650 E. Stonewall Street in nearly 9,000 square feet of space at the new Savoy Apartments.
The Gyu-Kaku dining experience is hands on with charcoal grills at each table where you cook your own meats and vegetables over an open flame.
The smokeless grills feature a down draft system that pulls smoke out the bottom and away from the dining room so you won’t smell like you’ve been hovering over a campfire.
This is a similar DIY tableside grilling experience to the one at Let’s Meat, a local Korean barbecue restaurant in South End.
The menu consists of ready-to-eat appetizers, noodle dishes, salads and soups along with raw beef, pork, chicken and seafood options and fresh vegetables for grilling.
Unlike Let’s Meat’s Meat, which offers all you can eat for a set price, Gyu-Kaku’s menu is priced a la carte.
The Harami skirt steak in miso marinade is the #1 most popular meat option.
