Does anyone know of a butcher in St Louis that sells or Wagyu beef, or a restaurant that serves it?

  1. O.K., I'll bite: what is Wagyu beef?
    Thanks, p.j.

    1. Wagyu is a breed of Japanese cattle. Kobe is a type of Wagyu beef. It is incredibly fatty, and therefore full of flavor.

      short form anyway...

      1. oh...and I've had Wagyu at Arthur Clay's, but I don't think it's a mainstay. I've had a difficult time trying to find even grass fed beef in St. Louis, and even when I found that, it had been frozen.


        1. The Royale on Kingshighway South said they were going to start serving Kobe beef. Maybe they can tell you their supplier.

          1. Some comp cook teams buy from these folks.

            Might check and ask who they market to in St. Louis


            1. I just recalled that my buddy at Finale, Tony Dahl, served us a Kobe hamburger with a slice of foie on top. Not sure if that's a normal thing, and if they also have kobe steaks.

              1. Busch's Grove has wagyu beef or they did last time I was there.

                  Straub's grocery store sells it.
