This gorgeous Brentwood eatery only uses USDA Prime or better, so you know you’re in for a meaty treat. A suggestion: celebrate filet day by indulging in the restaurant’s Wagyu tasting menu with three options: a 3 oz. Snake River Farms rib eye filet, a 3 oz. Darling Downs N.Y. Strip from Australia and a 3 oz. marbled Miyazaki A5 Japanese strip loin. You can also enjoy cuts from its USDA Prime Steak menu, including an 8 oz. petit, a 12 oz. center cut, a 16 oz. bone-in and a filet tasting, and 4 oz. medallions with a selection of toppings such as creamy blue cheese fondue (featured above).
