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.

Mixed-use development Atlantic Station is also set to welcome new locations of two local fast-casual concepts in the coming months: Vietnamese restaurant Pho 24 and Indian eatery NaanStop.
