Japanese beef emporium Takashi continues to riff on its menu, as it did when introducing a late night ramen special, this time introducing a new flight of 16 cuts of beef that are served on a single serving dish. The conceit is that it follows the anatomical order of the selections and comes served on a specially made platter crafted by a carpenter friend of the restaurant. The flight promises to serve as an "offal navigation" guide, while the diner enjoys selections from the "cheek to oxtail." Takashi is a yakiniku-style restaurant where patrons cook their own meats on table top grills.
The restaurant is calling the large format meal designed for three to six people the "cow experience," although we assume the beef will be from steer, the male of the species. Takashi source its beef from top local vendors Japanese Premium Beef, Pat Lafrieda, and Dickson's Farmstand Meats. The cost is $30 per person and must be reserved ahead of time, either online or by calling the restaurant directly. Only three platters will be served per night.
