Stand Up For Your Steak

The idea behind Ikinari Steak is to serve super thick high-quality meats quickly and economically; therefore people stand while consuming their steaks. It’s a fun, interactive, communal, and brand new experience for New Yorkers!

Ikinari Steak is a Japan based standing steak restaurant chain owned by chef and restaurateur Kunio Ichinose. Ikinari Steak opened in Tokyo in December 2013, and now has over 100 locations throughout Japan (as of January 2017).

Steaks are cut to order, cooked on an open-fire, and presented sizzling on a cast-iron platter. Guests then drizzle the Japanese soy sauce based signature sauce over the meat to heighten the flavor, and enjoy it while still sizzling. This is what is called "J-Steak" (Japanese style steak) introduced to New York by Ikinari Steak.

It's "Niku Mileage Card" (Niku is referred to as meat in Japanese) that allows diners to track how many grams of steak they’ve eaten and ranks them against other regulars.
