Dry Aged Prime Steaks -- Where to buy besides Bristol Farms?

Hi all. Where can I buy dry-aged Prime steaks besides Bristol Farms? Preferred cut is New York, but others will do, so long as dry-aged and Prime. Thank you.

    i want to say Beachwood Market has dry aged prime steaks - but i might be wrong. i've enjoyed the prime steaks i have bought there, but always forget to ask if they're dry or wet aged.

        Not sure if it's chain-wide, but the WF here in Woodland Hills has prime beef but only their choice grade is dry aged.

          yea I've had guss a couple times. The rib-eye was good, but I was dissapointed with the new yorks. 24.50 a pound for stringy beef that didn't blow me away with its flavor or tenderness. The jury is still out for me regarding mR. Guss.

          There's the place in the Farmer's Market that carries it and I recall the Ralphs on Wilshire and Bundy

                And Marconda's is much much less than BF and WF for better quality,. They know where their cattle come from...Montana, and the breed...Piedmontese.

                Huntington Meats in Farmer's Market at 3rd and Fairfax. We buy all meat there. All prime and less expensive than Bristol Farms and Gelson's.

                  A Little Reminder-

                  Folks, this is about finding a local L.A. purveyor of prime beef. Discussion of nationally distributed or web/mail order sources is out of scope for this board. If you would like to discuss web/mail order sources, please start a discussion on the General Topics board.
