Gyu-Kaku is a Japanese BBQ chain that has locations across the US. The Brookline location opened fairly recently. In this type of restaurant, you grill meat over a table grill. The meat is sliced thin so that you can cook it fairly quickly.
This restaurant is somewhat pricey, but the ambiance and quality of meat make up for the price. The booths are set up to be private and cozy.
We also ordered the house unfiltered sake, which was actually tasty and very reasonably priced, as far as sake goes. I believe these were bottled exclusively for the Gyu-Kaku brand.
