Wagyu Social/"The High Roller"
Now open, Wagyu Social is a delivery and pickup only restaurant dedicated to Japanese A5 Wagyu beef, known worldwide for its fine marbling and rich, full-bodied flavor. Wagyu Social showcases this prized beef with burgers, Niku (meat) sushi and rice bowls. All the Wagyu is imported from Japan and the burger buns are from Grandaisy Bakery in NYC.
