Brought to you by the Sugar Mountain team, (Beecher’s Cheese, Bennett’s, Pasta & Co., Maximus Minimus, and Liam’s), The Butcher’s Table is the latest addition to the company dedicated to bringing us pure food. Serving only high-end Wagyu beef from their Mishima Ranch, The Butcher’s Table is both a butcher shop and steakhouse.

As you enter the space, the first floor houses the butcher shop/lunch only sandwich shop, a bar, and dining tables. It has an open concept with wood, a large chandelier, and a wall of windows that allow you to look out onto Westlake Ave. Descend the stairs, and you’re transported to another dining area reminiscent of a more traditional steakhouse.
The menu is mostly comprised of U.S.-bred Wagyu steak sold in various cuts and weights, and we selected the Porterhouse to share. It was served on a wood cutting board and cooked to medium rare perfection. The outside had a nice char, and the interior was full of flavorful beef. We rounded out our dinner with the charred octopus, with chickpea puree and green coriander, the roasted bone marrow served with grape salsa and homemade english muffins, and sides of the cremini mushrooms and twice baked potato loaded with Beecher’s flagship.
The experience and service were wonderful, and our server was incredibly knowledgeable about all the different cuts and grade of beef.The oven roasted grape salsa did a great job of cutting the richness of the bone marrow, and the english muffins were the perfect accompaniment.
Overall, this isn’t a place we would frequent casually, but would definitely keep it on the list for date night or a celebration. The price point is high, but the Mishima Ranch Wagyu quality and grade options are awesome.
