Lucier has both, and it was true Kobe I had. UF only has the american.
First it's probably wagyu not kobe at Lucier. Second, there are multiple offerings of wagyu at UF.
Ellen, I cant really comment on UF since I havent been. That being said, If an out of this world steak is what youre after, and you are already considering a place as spendy as UF, go to Lucier and get a big hunk of the Kobe! Its the best steak I have eaten in recent memory!
sorry about the off topic-ness.
btw, it is 25$/oz. for the real deal at Lucier and worth it!
The one time I ate at Lucier I ordered the Kobe upgrade and 1/3 of it was pure gristle. Extremely dissapointing for those prices. When I said something to one of the staff they came back immediately with a stock response of, "it's a really fatty cut of meat" which made it seem like they are used to hearing that complaint. Ummm yeah, the fat content is what I'm paying for, not the gristle... For $25 an ounce, that's just unacceptable.
