Japanese BBQ in Brookline

Table at Gyu-Kaku

Now open in the former Ginza space on Beacon Street, this first-in-the-Bay-State outpost of the popular global Japanese BBQ joint lets you grill up your own yakiniku tableside and peddles a handsome selection of beef like kalbi short ribs, harami skirt steak, and tongue, alongside salmon, pork belly, and lamb chops. Wash it all down with a full repertoire of Japanese suds, sake, and cocktails such as the Patron/Blue Curacao Bamboo Margarita or the Cuervo- and pineapple-blended Fire.
