Michelin Star Chef Akira Back to Lead New Steak Concept
The owners of Infusion Lounge, one of the most successful nightclubs in San Francisco history and one of the top clubs in the world, announced a multi-million dollar renovation that will transform the space into Akira Back Steak, a new plush dining experience led by Michelin Star Chef Akira Back.
Located in Hotel Fusion on the corner of Ellis Street near Powell, Akira Back Steak will continue Chef Back’s two-decade long reputation of enticing the culinary word with his bold interpretations of Asian fare with American influence. His restaurants embody classic cuisine featuring innovative dishes that use the finest ingredients from the world’s top purveyors.
Chef Back’s portfolio includes DOSA in Seoul Korea, where Chef Back has won Michelin stars as well as two restaurants on the Las Vegas Strip, the famed Yellowtail Japanese Restaurant & Lounge by Akira Back at Bellagio Resort & Casino and Kumi Japanese Restaurant +Bar by Akira Back at Mandalay Bay. His global portfolio currently includes fourteen restaurants with locations in Toronto, Singapore, Bangkok, New Delhi, Hanoi, and Dubai. In addition to San Francisco, Chef Back has ten other locations in contract with scheduled opening dates.
“I’ve always wanted to bring my cuisine to San Francisco, one of the world’s culinary capitals, but have been waiting for the right location and partnership. Two blocks from Union Square, Hotel Fusion is in the heart of world-class dining and shopping, the ideal site for my latest venture,” says Chef Back.
