Time Out says

Some foods, from double-tortilla–wrapped tacos to dirty-water dogs, are well suited to eat while standing. Steak isn’t usually thought to be one of them—until now. Ikinari Steak, a Tokyo-based restaurant chain with more than 100 locations throughout Japan, is a standing-only steakhouse. (Okay, there are 10 seated tables for the lazy.) Customers can order steak by weight in three different cuts—rib eye, sirloin and filet—which the chefs slice and cook over an open fire. The resulting chop is served in a sizzling cast-iron pan with a side of corn and delivered to one of 40 communal standing stations, which are set with accoutrements like the restaurant’s signature soy-based J-Steak sauce.

While it is no longer just stand up. The steak Rare was really excellent. The atmsphere won't be for everyone but the concept is fun! Rewards for how much beef you eat ( ie 160 oz) and you are a gold card member! My concern is it will not tempt the dining preferences of New Yorkers and is best left in Japan.
