IAny recommendations on places that serve grass-fed, dry-aged steaks in the South Bay or peninsula? I'd like to take my husband out for his 40th b-day.

    The steaks are dry aged. You'll have to ask how they are fed. They advertise they have the highest grade Kobe Beef. Alexanders in Cupertino.

      Alexander's Steakhouse is always a great recommendation, but their website says they feature A5 Wagyu from Japan and "Certified Angus Beef, corn fed from the mid-west" dry aged inhouse. I'd say sweetnsavory should forgo the grass-fed and just go there to enjoy a good steak, "Omnivore's Dilema" notwithstanding.

      Flea St. Cafe serves Marin Sun Farms steak (grass-fed, organic, local).

      Grass-fed is hard to find. Kobe / Wagyu is the polar opposite of grass-fed.

        Santa Rosa may be too far away but I'm pretty sure Stark's Steakhouse has dry aged grass fed steaks.

          Starks lists an Estancia filet mignon:

          There are numerous restaurants serving Estancia in SF and points north, including the excellent El Raigon Argentine-style steakhouse (which serves only grass-fed):

          Sundance in Palo Alto? Don't know if its grass-fed but they do age 28 days...

            They use Certified Angus. I think the CAB marbling requirements exclude grass-fed.
