Presented as the ideal yakiniku (Japanese BBQ) restaurant by Satoru Tanaka, the owner of Nikuya Tanaka, a prestigious meat kappo (cuisine) restaurant in Ginza, TANAKA YAKINIKU RESTAURANTE opened its doors on the 1st basement (B1) floor of a building on Sakura-dori Street extending from Nagoya Station.
Tanaka learned to cut meat at his father’s butcher’s shop at around 10 years old. He realized his dream of running a meat restaurant as he opened his own restaurant featuring meat dishes at the age of 25. This restaurant, Nikuya Setsugekka Nagoya, immediately gained popularity for his creative dishes and interior design and garnered acclaim in an internationally known restaurant guide. This success was followed by 18 more restaurants across Japan, including in Tokyo, Nagoya, Gifu, and Shiga.
Tanaka invested his entire career in yakiniku cuisine. Having opened in October 2022, TANAKA YAKINIKU RESTAURANTE is a yakiniku restaurant that compiles all the experience and knowledge of Tanaka, also known as Meat Expert Boss, to offer his ideal yakiniku cuisine.
As implied by its name, TANAKA YAKINIKU RESTAURANTE offers prix fixe (fixed price) meals starting with appetizers and ending with desserts. The yakiniku dishes are made with the best beef of the day selected from premium beef, such as Matsuzaka, Kobe, and Omi Beef, by Satoru Tanaka, the meat expert who knows meat like the back of his hand, and grilled to the doneness of each guest’s choice. Guests can also enjoy wine elegantly served by the sommelier from the cellar, which always contains about ten bottles.
The interior designed by Yasumichi Morita, an interior designer from GLAMOROUS, who also helped Tanaka design the interior of Nikuya Tanaka in Ginza, is stylish and modern with artistic inspirations from the world of Setsugekka (beauty of the four seasons). With nine private dining rooms (each seating two to six guests) and counter seats, TANAKA YAKINIKU RESTAURANTE can be used to celebrate various occasions with your family, partner, friends, or colleagues. Please enjoy the artistic designs and the yakiniku dishes that can shatter your idea of what yakiniku is.
