Gyu-Kaku is a Japanese BBQ restaurant in Midtown where you can grill your own meats and try a ton of different things for around $25-30 per person. We’d recommend making a reservation, because it gets packed with groups and families - especially during the daily Happy Hour, when all the food is discounted and there’s a giant two-person set meal option for $55. Also, know that there’s a good chance your clothes will smell like meat after you leave.
