I posted a little bit about Kobe Club a couple of weeks ago, but got no replies. I'm curious about everyones experiences there so far? Anyone?

        wow, that is brutal. here's a quote that gave me a pause:

        "The sheer novelty of a steakhouse devoted solely to Kobe beef compelled your faithful critic to name the restaurant one of the city’s top new steakhouses in the magazine’s annual roundup of the best new places to eat in 2007. This was an error. On further inspection, Mr. Chodorow’s restaurant seems to me less like a steakhouse than a bizarre agglomeration of restaurant fashions and trends, most of them bad."

        yikes, so the recommendation as "one of the city’s top new steakhouses" was made NOT based on tryinig it? well, thank you for admitting it

          The article begins:
          "On my first visit to Jeffrey Chodorow’s new midtown beef palace, the Kobe Club......

          So it seems the critic did in fact visit the restaurant before making his intial recommendation.
