Grandscape, the mixed-use development in The Colony, has wrangled a glitzy new steakhouse called Akira Back Steak, featuring international celebrity chef Akira Back.

Akira Back Steak  is a meetup between Korean BBQ and modern American steakhouse from the Michelin starred chef. This is the second concept he's bringing to Grandscape, joining the previously announced Akira Back which is slated to open in late 2018. He's very into Akira Back as a name.

Akira Back Steak will be an intimate 4,000-square-foot steakhouse set to open in early 2019. Back stays true to his take on cultural merging, mixing flavors and tastes of his Korean origin with other global cuisines in an exotic fashion.

Akira Back Steak will combine a variety of dry and wet-aged premium steaks with an interactive cooking experience featuring table side Japanese charcoal roasters. Akira Back Steak will be a social and dining atmosphere unlike anything in the USA, bringing the flair of performance with the cuisine of a world-famous chef.

Akira Back Steak will join Cigars International and the recently announced Walk-On's Bistreaux & Bar, a lineup that Grandscape president Jeff Lind says continues the momentum at the 400-acre site, which includes the third Nebraska Furniture Mart in the country.

"From the outset we committed to bringing the best, most diverse retailers and restaurateurs together in one special location," Lind says in a release. "These three special brands deliver on that promise. Grandscape will deliver an experience like no other."

Cigars International offers a full cigar retail store with walk in humidor, complete with a state-of-the-art ventilation system. Their indoor and outdoor lounges will feature multiple TV’s, a full-service bar and will play host to many exclusive events. Cigars International is projected to open fourth quarter of 2018.

Walk-On's sports bar features a Cajun menu with items such as duck and andouille gumbo, red beans and rice, crawfish etoufee, boudin, and po-boys. It'll feature a large patio and beer garden is expected to open its doors second quarter 2019.
