Club Wins Beef Award

The Club's CHOP Steakhouse was named Certified Angus Beef's International Marketer of the Year for an independent restaurant at a ceremony in Texas.

 

The restaurant's chef de cuisine, Scott Kihara, was on hand at the beef brand's annual conference in San Antonio to pick up the award.

 

"This award reflects all the hard work by the staff at CHOP and the Club to offer our Members a superb product from an American brand that shares similar ideals," said Kihara.

 

"CHOP Steakhouse is our best-positioned licensed restaurant in Asia. It has a prestigious reputation throughout the Japanese beef industry, as well as with the US Meat Export Federation and US Embassy," said Brandy Erwin, assistant director of international marketing with Certified Angus Beef.

 

The third-floor hub of steaks and American classics serves a range of Certified Angus Beef cuts, including porterhouse, bone-in cowboy rib eye and bone-in strip loin.
