This Phoenix import turns the traditional steakhouse on its side with an Asian slant, a sexed-up crowd and a menu bookended by sushi and Wagyu grilled over Japanese binchotan charcoal. Sushi is fine, but you can get that anywhere. Focus instead on signatures: grilled chicken wings with salt and lime for doctoring, charred tomatoes and eggplant in soy vinaigrette, crispy miso-glazed rice cake studded with mushrooms. Like the stellar shochu and sake selection, Wagyu offerings are costly, but they do deliver.
