Prefecture Japanese Steakhouse is slated to open in Buckhead on June 23, 2023, the restaurant Tuesday announced in a press release. Prefecture is located in The Aramore, at 2277 Peachtree Rd., replacing Restaurant Eugene.
“This new establishment will redefine the dining experience by offering the finest cuts of wagyu beef and fresh seafood from around the world, paired with an extensive selection of fine wines, sake, beers, and cocktails,” the announcement states.
Helming the kitchen is Chef Sean Park of NoriFish Sushi in Sandy Springs. A highlight of the menu at Prefecture Japanese Steakhouse is its “omakase steak” experience which allows diners to entrust their palates to Chef Park’s expertise and indulge in a “multi-course culinary adventure featuring various cuts of wagyu beef prepared in unique and inventive ways” — from seared to grilled, braised, or served raw, each course will showcase the exceptional flavor profiles of different wagyu beef cuts, carefully selected for their richness and tenderness.
“Our ‘omakase steak’ experience is a true celebration of the artistry and versatility of wagyu beef,” Park said. “Each course is thoughtfully curated to highlight the distinct characteristics of various cuts, prepared using traditional and contemporary techniques. It’s an immersive journey for our guests, offering them a taste of the extraordinary flavors and textures that wagyu beef has to offer.”
In addition to the finest cuts of wagyu beef from Japan, Australia, and America, as well as other select cuts of beef, the menu also offers a selection of fresh fish sourced from renowned suppliers around the world. Tender cuts of Kurobuta pork belly round out the protein options at Prefecture Japanese Steakhouse.
Prefecture’s beverage program will offer an extensive selection of fine wines, “meticulously curated to enhance the flavors of each dish.” Sake enthusiasts can delight in premium sakes, sourced from Japan’s “most esteemed breweries.” Its cocktail menu blends “traditional Japanese ingredients with modern flair.” Craft beers round out the beverage options.
