If you’re having a nice steak for dinner, chances are you’re either celebrating or you live a life of luxury where money is no object. Steak is frequently the most expensive item on the menu if you’re dining out, and 24/7 Wall St. has compiled a list of the most expensive steakhouses out there.
Further, the article looks into what makes steak such an expensive item and why prices vary throughout the country.
Indeed, according to the article, five out of the 11 steakhouses that qualify as the country’s most expensive reside in Las Vegas.
Restaurant prices are driven by the market they are in, so more expensive cities will naturally have more expensive prices for food.
The article compiled the list using data from Zagat, which has information from 34 major cities in the United States.
#7 on the list, Jean George’s Steakhouse, uses only Kobe Wagyu beef, the most exclusive beef in the world that comes from Japan. The restaurant uses house-made sauces and rubs and is described as a completely sensational eating experience. The average cost of a meal here is $95.
Compare this to the number one most expensive steakhouse in the country, Cut in Los Angeles. Here, the average price of a meal is $106.
Cut is a Wolfgang Puck restaurant and is located directly in Beverly Hills. Just even pulling up the menu is a mouth-watering experience, which you can experience for yourself here.
