MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
This handsome “star” sports a Western flair with its hide-covered chairs and candle chandeliers, yet meat is the true monarch at this butcher shop and restaurant. You could pick up choice cuts to grill at home, but with an exhibition kitchen helmed by Chef Victor Jimenez, why miss out on all of the fun? Ingredients are curated with great care here and the meat is sourced from the nation's leading purveyors. Buttery Wagyu beef is seasoned and cooked without fuss, but packed with flavor. Sauces, such as the brandy peppercorn, are well worth the investment for a few extra bucks. Steakhouse standbys include Caesar salad, while the rich and dark chocolate chip-bread pudding veers from the traditional slice of cheesecake for a decadent detour.
