Located in the modern Ginza 7-chome building, Ushigoro S. Ginza is a flagship of an upscale restaurant group that remains loyal to carefully selected ingredients and the highest quality of meat. Hiroyuki Narumi, a head chef with experience at Japanese restaurants and yakiniku specialists from his mid-twenties, personally chooses the finest meat for each guest’s yakiniku course.
True to Ushigoro’s commitment to quality, the ‘S’ in the restaurant’s name refers to qualities that the establishment expresses via carefully sourced ingredients, sophisticated dining rooms, smart service, and passion. Meat is purchased mainly from ranches in Tottori Tamura Farm in Tottori and Okazaki Farm in Shiga; it is said that the meat of heifers from the former Tajima line of Japanese black cattle, raised in an environment that minimises stress, has a low melting point of fat, making them perfect for yakiniku. Each of the 11 rooms is completely private, with a simple, modern interior and assigned with a skilled staff trained to possess exquisite technique.
The restaurant specialises in thick cut beef tongue, a cut prepared in luxuriously thick slices; the exterior is cooked to be crispy, with a tender medium-rare centre, and elevated by the addition of green pepper miso and lemon. Meanwhile, the chateaubriand cutlet sandwich is a popular seasonal dish during the summer, consisting of a thick beef cutlet with black garlic sauce, sandwiched between freshly baked bread.
A sommelier is on hand to assist guests in choosing between 60-70 different bottles of red wine, white wine, and champagne that favours regions in France, Italy, and North America. The restaurant is ideal for a variety of occasions, from dining out with family, friends and colleagues, to private dinners and business entertaining.
