Hey Serge, it was a conversation, not an argument! LOL !!
For me personally:
The best beef that I “import” comes from Debragga’s in NYC. They supply over 50% of the best steakhouses in NYC from what I was told.
their site : http://www.debraggas.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
I would love to try Flannery based on what I read. Also, I get great steaks at the Meating Place in Boca Raton, Fl.
As for my favorite overall beef is good all dry aged USDA PRIME. Fck the grassfed sht. I think it sucks personally.
I have eaten at Argentinian Steakhouses and was NOT impressed whatsoever. But with that said, I could also have gone to the wrong places as I have read some very favorable things about Argentinian beef.
As for Kobe and Australian Waygu, too rich for me. Too much fat it in for my personal tastes (I really prefer filet’s) I have had the Waygu ribeye steaks numerous times and just way too rich. As for Kobe Filet’s, not enough of a difference in taste for me to justify the added expense.
How about those Kobe burgers? Is that a crock of you know what or ? I think it defeats the purpose to ground up such good meat (supposedly) in order to make burgers. Plus I am very suspect that the term “KOBE” is used way too loosely in this country and it seems there is more Kobe sold in America than is actually available ! I have heard of restaurants trying to pass off Australian Waygu as Japanese Kobe…
As for restaurants, here are my favorite places to have a steak in America.
Not necessarily in any order…
Delfrisco’s in NYC ONLY ( I was there a a couple of months ago and had an outstanding meal and they had a great wine list. The one in Vegas I was not impressed with) I think I ate at one in Houston and it was great, but I am not 100% of thats THE place or not. They had an after dinner shot called the snakebite. I drank three, took two steps and almost fell down.
Joe’s Seafood - Las Vegas, who would have thought that the best steak in Vegas is probably at this seafood establishment, but it was truly the best steak I had in Vegas. The Filet was one of the best I ever had.
Prime - at the Bellagio in Las Vegas
Capital Grill ( best chain out there probably, one in NYC is the ones I am referring to mostly)
NY PRIME - Boca Raton, Fl… excellent food but way too “BOCA” for me personally.
Uncle Jacks on 9th and 38th (ONLY) in NYC. They have other locations, but this one seemed to be the best
Heresford House - St.Louis, Mo.
Bern’s Steakhouse - Tampa, Fl
Smith And Wollensky’s (Philly, Miami and NYC locations only)
Peter Lugar’s - NY (slightly overated, but the porterhouse for two is truly a great steak)
Craft Steak - Las Vegas
I also like various Morton’s locations, but not all are created equal.
MOST OVERATED PLACE - RUTH CHRIS. I just don’t like the place compared to others in the same category.
Just my opinion, so don’t slam me, lol !!
