Chef Jessie Lugo has sourced Domestic Wagyu beef from across the US, the famous Japanese cow known for its incredible marbling. The bar and lounge offer a lively space to enjoy thoughtfully crafted bites and hyper-seasonal cocktails, while larger parties can enjoy all these benefits in ALX's spacious private dining rooms.
