New York, NY – Global restaurant and hospitality group ESquared Hospitality is partnering with Tokyo-based Jinterji Co. Ltd. to bring BLT Steak to Japan.
The first BLT Steak Tokyo will open at Roppongi-Itchome Izumi Garden later this month.
BLT Steak and ESquared Hospitality opened their first restaurant in New York City in 2004 and have grown their network to more than 10 brands and 28 restaurants worldwide, including 14 BLT Steak and BLT Prime locations.
The new Tokyo restaurant will be ESquared Hospitality’s sixth outpost in Asia, joining BLT Steak restaurants in Hong Kong and Seoul, and BLT Burger locations in Hong Kong and Taiwan.
ESquared Hospitality will also open BLT Steak in Bahrain later this year, marking the company’s first entrance into the Middle East.
The new BLT Steak Tokyo is a bi-level restaurant featuring high ceilings on the main floor with a spacious bar and dining room, which can accommodate 111 guests.
At the back are four private dining rooms that can seat six to eight guests in each, or be combined to host up to 20 guests.
Guests may smoke on the mezzanine level, which boasts a unique design and seating for 40, while an outdoor terrace “is adorned with greenery and colorful artwork to create an elegant resort atmosphere,” the company said.
