LA Steak vs Norcal Steak

  • 9

I've tried Alexander's and Bobo's and loved both and appreciate their differences. How do the places in LA compare (Cut, Mastro's, PDC, etc.)?

  1. I would put both Harris and Boboquivari's on par with places like Mastro and Wolfgang's in LA.

    I don't believe SF has an equivalent of CUT.

    Never been to, much less heard of Alexander's, although my steak eating experience up north has been limited to the financial district.

      Alexander's would be SF's poor attempt at a CUT equivalent.

      1. re: Porthos

        Where is Alexander's in SF? Or is he referring to the restaurant in Silicon Valley?

        1. re: ipsedixit

          I went to the one in Cupertino (Silicon Valley). According to the website, they have plans to open one up in SF.

          1. re: Porthos

            So I take it you prefer Cut to Alexander's? Good to know.

            1. re: Porthos

              Yes, it's the location in Cupertino. Surprised to hear CUT is so much more superior to Alexander's. Will definitely check it out. Is the quality all that much superior to that of Alexander's? Tried all different regions and cuts of wagyu from Alexander's and appreciate their differences. I've read on yelp that CUT only offers wagyu from Kagoshima and that sometimes it might not be of A5 grade, but not sure if I take those comments too seriously.

              Alexander's other location in SF is 5A5, but only offers a limited selection.

              1. re: kew702

                It's the appetizers and cooking at CUT that makes it far superior to Alexander's.

                Check out 3 consecutive reports in the below blog:

              I believe there's an Alexander's opening up in the City in the next few months. I want to say in SoMa, but I could be mistaken

              Cut is wonderful (but very expensive).
