Le Bernadin...a few questions about my dinner here: Kobe steak? Ingredients in a dish with sambal?

  • 0

Had an amazing dinner here last night. I was so overwhelmed by the goodness that I did not ask for details about two of the dishes, so here goes:

Second course was a langoustine in a sambal sauce..this sauce was so fragrant and so wonderful, I HAVE to know details of what it is composed of. Anyone know?

Ordered the surf and turf for main (on the 4 course menu). There was a substution of scallops for escolar. The meat was described on the menu as Kobe beef. It was the first time I had ever tasted this type of steak and "WOW" is all I can say. Flavor might have been even better, certainly as good, than the steak at Cabana Las Lilas in BA.

Questions:

Is the Kobe at LB from Japan? (I could kick myself for not asking last night)
Where is the best place in the city to buy this meat so I can cook at home and share with my partner? Lobels? Is it a mistake to attempt at home?
Where is the best place to order it in Manhattan in a restaurant?

Many thanks!
