Chef Katsuhiko Hanamure said to ABC News, "I would like to attract many different people who are craving high quality ingredients."

Derek Schuette, the restaurant's general manager said about the expensive price tag of the dish to ABC News, "Pricing is based on market supply and scarcity of products that are difficult and costly to import."

Eating at Katsu definitely comes at a price. Other menu items include a $400 Wagyu beef and a Japanese Kegoshima Prefecture Wagyu New York strip for $200.

Chef Hanamure also known as "Katsu" grew up in Kaseda, Japan a small city in the Kagoshima prefecture, states the restaurant's website.
