Chef Katsu Brooklyn
Where we've featured it
Open for indoor dining, outdoor dining, takeout and delivery
“When I lived in Clinton Hill in 2019, I would have done unspeakable things for a spot like Chef Katsu Club. The newest Japanese restaurant in the area serves the kind of excellent pork and chicken katsu that makes me want to say “F*ck it, I’m getting takeout!” in the middle of a garbage week. The specialty here is katsu burgers stacked high with crispy chicken cutlets and topped with creamy mayo and housemade tartar or curry sauce. If you’d rather have katsu comfort in the form of a rice bowl, they’ve got those too - I recently paired one with their brioche donut sandwich filled with azuki bean paste and green tea ice cream and felt an instant rush of dopamine. And while the food is the primary reason you should eat here, the love story behind this new katsu restaurant in Clinton Hill is a strong second.”
Katsu burgers, Japanese rice bowls, and yuzu-flavored desserts are the focus at this new restaurant in Clinton Hill. Chef Katsu Club is run by a husband and wife team who decided to open their own place in the neighborhood, funded by a huge Kickstarter. The restaurant officially opens Wednesday, March 17th, and will offer limited indoor and outdoor dining from 11am-8pm.
