Residents of the Greater Heights area seeking out a new type of steakhouse vibe now have a new option available to them in the Heights.

Karne Korean Steakhouse, the creation of restaurateur Jason Cho and Chef Yurum “KP” Nam, officially opened its doors in the Heights on Nov. 11 at 2805 White Oak Dr. Suite 100.

The menu at Karne features prime beef, American and Japanese wagyu, and meats dry-aged in-house, and cooked-to-order by tableside hosts. Private dining rooms are also available by reservation and will feature a multi-course Chef Tasting Menu, according to a news release from the restaurant. There is also a cocktail list and 173 wines available to accompany the food selection.

“I was inspired by travel and visuals seen here and around the country,” Cho said. “It was important to me to create a restaurant that offered escapism and a vibe not normally seen in Korean restaurants.”
