After several delays, a Japanese BBQ restaurant has made its much-anticipated debut in Atlanta.
Gyu-Kaku is now open at Atlantic Station, Tomorrow’s News Today first reported and a representative for Atlantic Station confirmed to the AJC. The eatery took over the space formerly occupied by Copeland Cheesecake Bistro, which closed in early 2017. Gyu-Kaku announced its intentions to open in Atlantic Station the following month.
The Japanese-based chain, whose name means “Horn of the Bull” in Japanese, “utilizes restaurant operating techniques and methods (developed) in the mid-1990s” according to the restaurant’s website.
Customers cook cuts of beef, pork, poultry, seafood, vegetables and desserts on in-table smokeless roasters.
The menu also includes a variety of appetizers, soups, vegetables and alcoholic beverages, including a selection of sake, shochu and beer, as well as non-alcoholic drinks.
Gyu-Kaku operates more than 700 Japanese yakiniku restaurants in 11 countries, including more than 40 locations in the US and Canada.
