Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

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.
