Wagyu Street to Open at LBX in April 2024

LONG BEACH, Calif., March 4, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Wagyu Street, a tantalizing culinary venture centered around premium wagyu beef, is set to make the first U.S. location in April 2024 at The Hangar Food Hall in Long Beach Exchange (LBX). This exciting addition promises a novel fast-casual dining experience, featuring a delectable selection of USDA prime beef and an array of both Japanese and American wagyu—known for its unparalleled richness and tenderness.

What to Expect at Wagyu Street:

1. Customizable Delights: The Wagyu Street model draws inspiration from dishes that allow complete customization. Patrons can indulge in a variety of options, including:

  • Bento Boxes
  • Sandwiches
  • Bowls & Salads
  • Sushi, Curry Rice and more

2. Meat and Sauce Selection: Customers will have the pleasure of selecting their preferred meat cuts and accompanying sauces, ensuring a personalized dining experience.

3. Japanese Sake Pairings: To elevate the feast, Wagyu Street will offer a curated selection of Japanese sake, perfectly harmonizing with each sumptuous meal.

4. A Legacy of Flavor: Inspired by the renowned yakiniku (grilled meat) restaurant “Gyu-shige,” which first opened its doors in Fuchu, Tokyo in the late 1980s, Wagyu Street brings this legacy of flavor to Long Beach. Its inaugural U.S. location debuted in Virginia in 2021.

5. Wagyu’s Rise in Popularity: Over the past decade, wagyu has captured the hearts (and palates) of Americans due to its melt-in-your-mouth tenderness and unparalleled taste. As one of the most sought-after cuts of meat, it has become a culinary sensation.

Founder and Chef Keiji Shimamoto has over 25 years of experience in the food industry, contributing to the development of various restaurant concepts across Japan, Asia, and the United States. His culinary expertise and passion drive the vision behind Wagyu Street, where premium-quality meats meet accessible and affordable dining experiences. Through Wagyu Street, he aims to bridge cultures between US and Japan, elevate palates, and contribute to both human health and environmental consciousness by promoting a balanced approach to meat consumption.
