The induction of Butcher’s Block into the by-invite-only Dom Pérignon Society celebrates the union of fine dining and exceptional champagne–a testament to the unwavering commitment to excellence shared by both entities

Since 2020, Butcher’s Block has been a haven for those who appreciate the nuanced art of wood-fired cuisine. The open kitchen, equipped with custom-built ovens and grills, allows diners to witness the transformation of premium ingredients into culinary masterpieces. At the helm is Chef Jordan Keao, a visionary with Hawaiian roots bringing a deep passion for wood-fire cooking and a rich background in top U.S. venues to the table. It is this resume and his speciality in zero-waste and whole-animal butchery techniques that earned him a place in the prestigious Dom Pérignon Society.

This inclusion signifies more than a mere accolade; it heralds a new chapter of shared ambitions and unparalleled experiences. Chef Keao’s admiration for Dom Pérignon’s craftsmanship mirrors his relentless pursuit of culinary excellence.

“To deliver something truly exceptional, I believe in genuine synergy when approaching brand partnerships,” professes Chef Keao. “As an admirer of Dom Pérignon’s craft and fellow members, I am incredibly humbled to be part of this network and excited to curate delightful joint experiences for our guests.”

As a Dom Pérignon Society member, Butcher’s Block will offer exclusive experiences, including rare vintages and new releases. Collaborations with global Dom Pérignon Society chefs will further elevate the dining experience.
