Beef connoisseurs from all over are encouraged to run, not walk, to Kaikagetsu to enjoy some of Japan's most prized beef, also known as Hida Wagyu. The high-class Lower East Side restaurant showcases the luxurious and elevated kaiseki-style dining experience, marked by its paced, multi-course design, flush with small, appetizer-style dishes, or sakizuke, and sashimi-style dishes, or mukozuke. Among these, diners get the unique chance to experience the tender quality of exceptional beef from the city of Hida, Gifu prefecture, known for its distinct marbling, texture, and unique fragrance.
