Located in a quiet area of Kego, Butcher offers an authentic premium steak experience. Using NY-style dry aged Black Angus beef, the chef grills the steaks slowly over charcoal, then finishes them off at a high temperature to create a juicy-on-the-inside, crispy-on-the-outside steak. Head chef Hideki Katsuya uses his French culinary techniques to ensure that the natural flavor is the star of the show—the only seasoning provided is a side of salt. Vegetables are directly sourced from farmers in Kumamoto and the highly skilled waitstaff provide exquisite service. For a special night!
