About Us

Our Menus

A great steak is at the foundation of who we are. This begins with the craftsmanship dedicated to our dry-aging program. As an investment in better flavor for our diners, the extensive program offers a variety of cuts such as Wagyu Beef and New Frontier Bison Ribeye. Climate controlled aging rooms allow the cuts of meat to tenderize to perfection before they are butchered in-house and cooked precisely to order.
