Wagyu Tasting Menu at Chaya

For two weeks only, you can indulge in Grade A5 Wagyu beef at Chaya on the Embarcadero. Wagyu is heavily marbled and extremely flavorful cuts of Japanese beef (said to be a result of feeding the cattle sake and massaging them regularly—tough life!). You’ll be able to experience the cut in different forms on the menu, ranging from wagyu nigiri to a ribeye-style cut served with asparagus, pickled ramps, and freshly grated wasabi. Yum.  //  April 16-April 30: 132 Embarcadero (Embarcadero), Reserve here.
