Looking for best Kobe Beef (NoVA/DC)

bashfulle Jul 3, 2012 07:44 AM

I'm trying to find a restaurant that has real Kobe beef in the NoVA/DC area. I'm in Fairfax County, but willing to drive a bit. This is for a birthday dinner...

thanks for your help!

      Real Kobe beef from Japan is unavailable to due import restrictions. You can get US or Australian wagyu at most Ruth's Chris' or if you drive into DC BLT serves a good version as well.

        Hey Baik- where would I find something printable to verify this to some "beefoodie" friends? Do you have an easy link?

        EDIT-- went ahead and googled for myself.

        Now reading about wagyu.
