From the Chef cutting on our in-house bone saw, to our dry-age coolers filled with everything from the finest Prime Beef and Wagyu to an array of Chef crafted specialties, there is always something to celebrate for the steak connoisseur. Further distinguished by our proprietary aging methods, the result is the most precise, abundantly flavorful, and tender steaks on the market.
At 801, we are proud to offer Wagyu daily at all of our locations. The Chef selects both domestic and imported A5 cuts to provide the finest Wagyu dining experience to our guests.
The word Wagyu translated directly means “Japanese cattle”. There are 47 prefectures in Japan, many of which produce different brands of Wagyu boasting a variety of tasting notes due to differences in production area, bloodline, breed, grade, the method of rearing and period of time raised. 801 Chophouse sources A5 Wagyu from a variety of brands from the most acclaimed prefectures in Japan.
Each cut of A5 is the highest quality of steak available – which is why we say it’s truly a luxury steak. The grade of A5 comes from a combination of the Yield (A being the highest rating) and a maximum score of 5 represents the highest grade for meat with ideal firmness, texture, coloring, and marbling.
